Steiner on Grosjean's horror crash: We were lucky

Romain Grosjean experienced an incredible horror crash in the first round of the Bahrain Grand Prix. After colliding with another car on the first lap, he slammed into the guardrail, breaking his car in two and bursting into flames. Fortunately, Grosjean emerged from the conflagration with minor injuries.

Grosjean is okay

"A huge shock," Jack Plooij explains to the Haas team principal Guenther Steiner. “Yes, it was a big one. But luckily it looks like he's okay. He's on his way to the hospital for checkups, but he's completely conscious. He has minor burns on his hands and ankles, but otherwise he is fine. If there is more damage, for example due to the impact of the crash, they check it in the hospital. ”

“I've been working in Formula 1 for a long time, but have never seen a crash like this. It shows how safe the cars are today. But also the happiness you can have in life; you have to be in the right place at the right time. "

At this point, probably everyone is convinced of the usefulness of the halo. “And also a bow to all the people who pushed for the halo, because some were against it. But without the halo, we don't know how it ended, and we better not know. ”

“He had an angel on his shoulder,” says Plooij. "A very big one," said Steiner.
