Romain Grosjean says he ‘saw death coming’ in terrifying fireball F1 car crash but fought to escape ‘for my children’

ROMAIN GROSJEAN says he ‘saw death coming’ in his fiery crash in the Bahrain Grand Prix. The 34-year-old was saved by the halo on his F1 car while this year’s race suit protected him from burning to death. F1 rules introduced a new suit for this season that doubled the time drivers could be exposed to flames to around 20 seconds – the same time it took Grosjean to escape. Grosjean described his escape from the accident as ‘almost like a second birth’. “And then, for my children, I told myself that I had to get out. I saw death coming, I had no other option but to get out of there.”.
