How Grosjean survived fireball Bahrain F1 crash that split his car in two

Romain Grosjean escaped from one of the scariest F1 crashes in recent memory in the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix, when his Haas car pierced the barriers and split in half as it caught fire after a 137mph impact. In this video we explain what we know about the crash, how Grosjean climbed out of the wreckage, and the key factors that enabled him to survive an accident that surely would have resulted in a fatality just a few years ago

    What a bunch of hooey. Put some decent mirrors on these cars! What a bonehead move to veer across the track like RG did. Perhaps if had been able to see his rival coming, he would not have tried such a move. Not to mention on lap 1? Cars laden with fuel - RG should be banned from the "sport". He screwed up.

    Very good work that they have done to keep the drivers as safe as possible. Would like them to adopt the safer barrier that NASCAR USES ON all tracks they race on. I understand that some tracks in F1 can't install that type of barrier due to the track also being part of a public roadway, but I think it should still be considered at least for the most dangerous parts of those tracks.

    the reason he survived is because the energy was dissipated by the split, plus the bending of the barrier. A unbreakable barrier + non-splitting car, he would probably would have died or lost consciousness and then burned very badly.

    My concern when the Halo system first came in was that it would delay a driver getting out of the vehicle in an emergency, or possibly even prevent him being able to get out. Looking at the footage in detail and listening to Grosjean's own recounting of the incident this was indeed the case. His position, with the underside of the car appearing to have penetrated the barrier first would suggest that HALO had less beneficial effect than has been suggested. The HALO system would need to be examined to see exactly what damage it has but my concerns about HALO remain. Had he been unable to extract himself, as was very nearly the case, he would almost certainly have been significantly more seriously injured, or dead. Halo would have made it significantly more difficult for rescuers to extract him. As it was, it certainly delayed his extraction.

    a huge car traveling at very high speeds hit the barrier, that's why it failed. it's probably for the best that it failed, if that was thick concrete we might be talking about a driver who lost his life or his legs. it's not ideal for it to give way and rip the car in half obviously, but just be happy it wasn't concrete.

    @butti fdft That is the biggest issue and nobody is talking about it. There had to be a better way to create these entrances. That would have been a glancing blow had not the wall narrowed the track by 20 or more degrees. And then there's the issue of what the hell is an armco doing there. What is the standard for allowing armco's to be used where or even is there a standard. If someone can't afford to build a race track f1 shouldn't be racing there.

    The FIA should adopt the windscreen into the HALO system like Indycar uses to prevent smaller objects from entering the cockpit. It would not change the look of it but would go a long way toward keeping smaller objects out of the drivers face. I was among those that disliked the HALO system at first but this and other incidents proves how well it works and definitely saved Grosjean's life. I have been watching F1 for over 30 years and have never seen anything like that. Scariest F1 crash ever that was not fatal.

    Without the Halo there is zero doubt that Grosjean would not be with us now and the manor of his demise would have been horrific -- thanks to the Halo that didn't happen.
