Grosjean is Allowed to Leave the Hospital After A Serious Crash in Formula 1
Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean left Bahrain hospital on Wednesday. The Frenchman has primarily recovered from the burns he sustained in a serious crash on Sunday.
Grosjean will remain in Bahrain and will undergo treatments on his back and hands in the coming days, his team Haas reports.
Grosjean will be replaced next weekend during the Grand Prix of Sakhir by reserve driver Pietro Fittipaldi from Brazil. The 34-year-old Frenchman hopes to compete in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in a week and a half, the last race of this year.
Grosjean survived a serious crash just after the start of the Bahrain Grand Prix. His car shot off the track after a collision with that of the Russian Daniil Kviat and pierced the crash barrier at high speed. The car broke in two and immediately caught fire.
Grosjean managed to climb out of the wreckage on his own and was rushed to the hospital. There it turned out after an investigation that he had not broken anything and only had burns from the accident.
