Track designer defends Bahrain after Grosjean crash

The designer of the Bahrain GP venue has defended the circuit’s safety measures in light of Romain Grosjean’s fiery recent crash. “If the force is great enough, everything breaks at some point,” F1 circuit designer Hermann Tilke told Der Standard. “The force on Grosjean was 53G, which is an incredible amount,” said Tilke. “Everything has advantages and disadvantages so you have to be careful not to worsen the situation in other scenarios,” Tilke explained. But you wouldn’t then say ‘I won’t buckle up again’. Tilke also responded to claims that another of his layouts – Abu Dhabi – was the reason Formula 1’s 2020 season finale was so boring.
