It still scares and chills. The images of the Bahrain Grand Prix of Formula 1, in which Grosjean he almost lost his life, it continues to be a matter of analysis and debate among fans and experts in the highest category. In the last hours there was an impressive animated recreation carried out by a French channel, of the moment of the accident.
First lap of the Grand Prix, and Grosjean looked to advance positions. The Haas the Frenchman was driving was not competitive at all. Therefore, he started from the bottom of the peloton. After the first corner, the pilot managed to pass some competitors. Nevertheless, when closing and covering the position, he touched with the AlphaTauri of Pierre Gasly and went directly against the barriers.
Once the car touched the barriers of the Sakhir circuit, the car burst into flames. Everyone who was present on the circuit and the viewers, quickly thought the worst. Memories of Jules Bianchi’s accident, and the worst ghosts reappeared. However, the miracle happened. Grosjean untied his seatbelts and left under his own power.
The French had to be hospitalized quickly. All the safety elements worn by the pilots worked perfectly: the HANS, the HALO, the flame retardant diver, the gloves and the cockpit. Together, the elements saved Grosjean’s life. However, the HALO was essential to have the pilot alive.
The HALO was the element that protected the pilot’s head and what opened the metal barriers (which should not be there and are dangerous). Grosjean is alive, and thankfully, he will be racing in IndyCar again. The Frenchman will be part of the most important category of motorsport in the United States. However, you will not compete in the famous ovals as they pose a danger to your physique.
