by Nov 29, 20200 comments


Haas has issued an update on the condition of its driver Romain Grosjean, who was injured in a major crash at the start of today’s Bahrain Grand Prix.

Grosjean will remain overnight at the Bahrain Defence Force military hospital in Bahrain. Scans have indicated he has not suffered any fractures as initially feared.

“Following medical evaluation by doctors at the Bahrain Defence Force hospital Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean will remain in hospital overnight to be treated for burns sustained on the back of both hands after his opening lap incident at the Bahrain Grand Prix,” said the team in a statement. “All X-rays performed on Grosjean came back clear of fractures.”

Grosjean is due to return to action at this weekend’s Sakhir Grand Prix. Team principal Guenther Steiner said he hopes he is able to drive.

“Knowing him, he wants to be back, but we’ll see tomorrow when they take the bandages off because he has no idea what they look like,” said Steiner.

“For me, at the moment, the only good thing is nothing bad happened. For sure it wasn’t good, but he’s safe, he’s healthy. The rest we’ll see tomorrow when we speak with the doctors.”
