Romain Grosjean’s wife says ‘several miracles’ saved her husband from fiery F1 crash at Bahrain Grand Prix

The halo was pushed through by the FIA following the devastating brain injuries Bianchi sustained in the accident.

Marion continued: “Thank you to the family of Jules Bianchi; to his father Philippe, who I think of constantly [and] to Jules himself.”

Grosjean’s car split in two and burst into flames after he pierced through a steel barrier at 137mph following a collision with AlphaTauri’s Daniil Kvyat on the opening lap.

Grosjean scrambled to get out of his burning wreckage for almost half a minute before leaping to safety. The force of the impact registered at 53G.

“Romain Grosjean is continuing his convalescence at the Bahrain Defence Force (BDF) Hospital having remained there overnight following Sunday’s incident at the Bahrain GP,” a statement released by his Haas team said.

“Treatment on the burns Grosjean sustained on the back of both his hands is going well. It is anticipated he will be discharged from the care of the hospital on Tuesday 1st December.”

Stepping into Grosjean’s shoes this weekend is Haas’ Brazilian reserve driver Pietro Fittipaldi for his F1 debut. The 24-year-old is the grandson of double world champion Emerson Fittipaldi.
