Romain Grosjean talks about Lifesaver Halo / Formula 1 SPEEDWEEK.COM

Romain Grosjean from Geneva reported from the BDF (Bahrain Defense Forces) military hospital in Manama: “I’m more or less fine. But without Halo I couldn’t speak to you now. ”

Romain Grosjean is in the BDF (Bahrain Defense Forces) military hospital in Manama, the capital of the Arab island state. He will stay in the hospital the night of November 30th – a precaution by the doctors. Apart from burns on both hands, the man from Geneva was unharmed in the terrible accident shortly after the start of the Bahrain GP.

Grosjeans Haas-Renner was torn in two in an impact of 50g, the Genevan luckily managed to wriggle out of the survival cell and escape the fireball.

He spoke to the Formula 1 fans from the sick bed: “Hello everyone, I just wanted to say that I’m okay.” Romain looks briefly at his thickly bound hands, then adds, “Well, more or less okay. Thank you for all your messages. “

“I wasn’t in favor of introducing the Halo headgear a few years ago, but this is the most fabulous thing we’ve brought into Formula One and without it I couldn’t speak to you now. I would like to thank all the medical staff, at the race track and here in the hospital. Hopefully I’ll be able to type messages again soon and keep you posted on how things are going. “
