What’s next for Grosjean?
Grosjean was able to remove the bandage on his left hand 39 days after his serious fire accident in Formula 1. How is it going with him?
As a reminder: At the 2020 Bahrain GP, the Frenchman crashed into and through the guardrail after touching Daniil Kvyat’s Alpha Tauri Honda. His Haas Ferrari broke in two. The front part was stuck with Grosjean in the guardrails. Only the Halo headguard saved him from major injuries. When the car broke, gas leaked and caught fire. Grosjean sat in the blazing flames for 28 seconds but managed to free himself.

His seven-year-old son Sacha even asked his father to hang up his helmet – as Grosjean reveals to the radio station “France 5”: “He asked me to stop racing and said: ‘Become an engineer, that’s cool too . ‘”
A decision on whether to continue has not yet been made. First it’s about the full recovery of his left hand.
