New Angles Show Romain Grosjean's Miraculous Escape From F1 Crash

New angles showing just how lucky Romain Grosjean was to escape with minor injuries from his crash at the Bahrain GP on Sunday.

Grosjean flew into the barrier on turn three of the first lap of the race - which was immediately suspended under a red flag when it happened.

Despite the car exploding and splitting into two from the impact, Grosjean walked away from it unaided. His team, Haas F1, revealed in the aftermath that the 34-year-old has some minor burns on his hands and ankles but is otherwise OK.

It could be that the driver was saved thanks to the 'halo' protection brought in after the death of fellow Frenchman Jules Bianchi in 2015. Bianchi's mother, Christine, said how thankful she was that this head protection my have stopped a repeat situation this time around.

The race has now resumed without Grosjean, and is just over half way through. Lewis Hamilton, who has already won this year's title, is in the lead with Max Verstappen in second.

Viewers around the world were shocked by the footage, and there are now several angles where you can see just how miraculous Grosjean's escape really was.
