Romain Grosjean faced death last season when he hit the crash barrier at high speed during the Bahrain Grand Prix. His Haas car broke in two and caught fire, after which the Frenchman disappeared temporarily into a sea of fire.
Things went wrong almost immediately after the start of the race at the Bahrain International Circuit. Grosjean made contact with Daniil Kvyat’s AlphaTauri after a few turns, after which he lost control of his car and shot nose forward into the crash barrier at high speed.

The rear of the car broke off from the impact, which also ripped open the gas tank and allowed the fuel to ignite. Grosjean disappeared in a cloud of black smoke and flames.
The race was immediately stopped, while everyone watching with bated breath was waiting for images of the Frenchman. After 28 seconds there was a sigh of relief. It could be seen how Grosjean had managed to escape from his cockpit on his own and climbing over the crash barrier. Here he was received by the medical staff.

The 34-year-old driver was mainly left with severe burns to his hands, from which he has fortunately largely recovered. This season he will are going to make its debut in the American IndyCar Series.
It is no secret that Grosjean survived the crash due to the enormously improved safety in Formula 1 in recent years. For example, without the halo, it would have been his head that made contact with the guardrail first.

The French Canal+ made an animation about the crash in a recently released documentary about Grosjean. This clearly shows how the halo, with the exception of a few millimeters, prevents the crash from being fatal.
I hope you are in health and well.
