Jules Bianchi's Mother Gives Heartfelt Message After Romain Grosjean Survives Major F1 Crash

Jules Bianchi's Mother Gives Heartfelt Message After Romain Grosjean Survives Major F1 Crash

Romain Grosjean survived a major crash on Sunday, with his Haas F1 car smashing into the barrier during the first lap of the Bahrain GP.

Luckily the Frenchman survived the incident, miraculously walking away after his vehicle exploded and was split in two by the impact. He suffered minor burns on his hands and ankles, but was otherwise OK - according to the Haas F1 team.

It could be that Grosjean was saved by the 'halo' a circular barrier around drivers' heads that was introduced after countryman Jules Bianchi was killed due to a crash at the Japanese GP in 2015.

In the aftermath of Grosjean's incredible escape, Bianchi's mother, Christine, messaged French commentator Julien Febreau to say that she is very glad that he survived and that the extra safety measures brought in due to her son's death could have been what made sure he didn't suffer any serious damage.

Team principal of the Haas F1 team, Gunther Steiner, also thanked the marshalls and FIA staff for getting to Grosjean so quickly after his accident.

"Romain is doing okay, I don't want to make a medical comment but he had light burns on his hands and ankles," he said. "Obviously he's shaken... I want to thank the rescue crews who are very quick. The marshals and FIA people they did a great job, it was scary."
