  • Can't help but feel this, now the dust has settled but, what an unbelievable error by Grosjean to move across so wildly with cars all around him like that. Glad he survived, but glad he's no longer in F1. He's a danger to everyone.

  • The driving style is totaly different from the 90´s or 80´ s. I remember Keke Rosberg saying as a commentator:"Three cars side by side that is to much"... And this Grosjean guy is such a crash-pilot... He should have known that there is someone in his blind side 17 o'clock position...As F1 driver you simply have to have this instinct. Don´t trust your mirrors alone. Lucky him!

  • There is no doubt that the halo was integral to saving Romain’s life. What amazes me is that as a fully frontal impact, and that the car penetrated the barrier, Grosjean didn’t sustain any lower body injuries. Thankfully he didn’t but I was certain that he would have broken his legs due to the impact and how the nose and front of the car disintegrated

  • The marshal with an extinguisher behind the wall wasn't close enough to help much until after Grojean was already out, which might have actually helped a little, by not blowing the flames toward the cockpit.

  • Grosjean must have a guardian angel with him, he's been in a few crashes and caused a few. He seems a genuinely nice guy, maybe too nice for F1. Side visibility is poor in these cars, time for some type of HUD incorporated into the helmet visor, giving 360 visuals.

  • No one discussing the track marshal's lack of knowing how to use fire equipment? You don't spray the top of the fire, you spray at the root. And you need to wait till you are actually at the fire before starting spraying. A bit of a refresher course is in order.

  • Thank you for sharing. Thank goodness he survived. One of the reasons I love F1 is for the technology, safety features included. I have seen the halo "likely" save drivers too many times to wonder why it wasn't always a thing. If it had only ever be put on one car in one instance, I am glad Romain had it on his car this night. As well the strength of the driver and the response of the safety crews,,,,, I am overtly inspired every day.
