Romain Grosjean suffered 67G in fiery Bahrain GP crash – report

These include changes to the cars, barriers, circuits, driver safety equipment and medical response. Grosjean’s crash was one of the most dramatic in many years, as his Haas car split the crash barrier, and was suspended in it on its side. The driver was trapped in the burning car for nearly 30 seconds before managing to wriggle out to safety. It was the first time a car had caught fire so dramatically in a crash in a grand prix since 1989, and the first time a barrier had split in such a way since the 1970s. And there will be further research into a number of areas including warning systems, and improving existing barriers and fire equipment, as well as new barrier systems.
