The race saw a horrendous incident and it was suspended for an hour and twenty minutes. Romain Grosjean had moved right across the track and had a little collision with Daniil Kvyat which sent him out of the track and resulted in a collision with the barrier.
The impact left his car torn into pieces as his car lighted up in fumes. It was very fortunate that he could come out of the car immediately.
We are so thankful that Romain Grosjean was able to walk away from this. We did not need a reminder of the bravery and brilliance of our drivers, marshals, and medical teams, nor of the advances in safety in our sport, but we truly got one today#BahrainGP 🇧🇭 #F1 pic.twitter.com/z8OeTU5Nem

Following the race, the winner of Bahrain Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton reflected on Romain Grosjean’s accident. He said, “It was such a shocking image to see. When I get in the car I know that I’m taking risks and I respect the dangers that are in this sport.”
“I posted about it whilst we were in that break because it’s horrifying. I don’t know what Gs [forces] he pulled but I’m so grateful that the Halo worked, I’m grateful that the barrier didn’t slice his head up or something like that. It could have been so much worse.”
“Thankful to the FIA for the massive strides we’ve taken for Romain to walk away from that safely.”
The next race is Sakhir Grand Prix which is set to take place at the same venue of Bahrain International Circuit on Sunday, December 6.
