Romain Grosjean of the Haas team just survived THIS:



That is just insane. Car split in two, fuel exploded, and he just walks out of the fire. I was sure he was a goner the moment the fuel caught fire!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Wow!

The forward part of the car, with him in it, crashed thru the barrier.

Amazing...

Probably everyone who seen the GP in live thought the same. Seeing him in the back of the medical car was a relief.

A guardian angel was watching over him. Amazing he survived without any serious injuries.

Not to make light of the event, but Grosjean (once again) refusing to slow down when the grid is backing up and all over the shop and darting into a non-existent gap.The guy can obviously drive, but man, he constantly does silly stuff like this and puts himself out or at the back.

Wow. Just goes to show how highly engineered those cars are that a human being can walk away from that.

Surprised to see fire, I thought F1 fuel had a colourless burn.

I guess this settles any remaining objections to the halo.

Very glad to see that the driver survived that.
