Romain Grosjean will NOT race in this weekend’s second Bahrain Grand Prix following his horror crash with French driver to be replaced by Haas reserve Pietro Fittipaldi, grandson of double world champion Emerson Fittipaldi
Romain Grosjean has been ruled out of this weekend’s second consecutive race in Bahrain following his horrific crash on Sunday.
Grosjean’s Haas car smashed into a barrier at 140mph on the first lap of the race. On impact, it burst into flames, tore through the barrier and split in half as he was left in the burning wreckage for around 30 seconds before managing to rush to safety.
Despite a Haas statement on Monday revealing Grosjean is expected to be released from hospital on Tuesday, Haas have pulled him from this weekend’s race on the same circuit.
He will be replaced by the team’s Brazilian reserve driver Pietro Fittipaldi, the 24-year-old grandson of double world champion Emerson Fittipaldi.
