Grosjean skipping Abu Dhabi to avoid skin graft

Romain Grosjean says skipping the final race in his Formula 1 career this weekend will safeguard his longer-term health. The Frenchman, who watched Sunday’s Sakhir GP from the sidelines, made the “most difficult but wisest” decision to return home to Switzerland rather than try to return to his Haas cockpit with burned hands in Abu Dhabi. “I will not be in Abu Dhabi because my left hand is still badly burned,” Grosjean explained. Earlier, there had been speculation that newly-crowned Formula 2 champion – and 2021 Haas driver – Mick Schumacher would take over Grosjean’s vacant cockpit in Abu Dhabi this weekend.
