Marion Grosjean speaks up after her husband’s crash. “Several miracles were necessary”. Romain Grosjean is allowed to leave the hospital.
Romain Grosjean survived a fire inferno.
He crashed at the Bahrain GP. The result: His car broke in two and went up in flames.
As if by a miracle, the 34-year-old survived.
Now his wife speaks up.
The pictures were shocking. Flames of fire shot up, the car tore in two. Right in the middle of it all is Romain Grosjean. He was caught in the flames for 27 seconds before he was able to free himself and jumped out of the fire almost unharmed. How he survived this fire inferno is a different story. And one that Grosjean’s wife is probably only of limited interest.
She’ll probably just be happy that her husband, the Haas pilot, survived the horror crash. She reported on Instagram with emotional words and thanked you for the sympathy and help. She wrote her words under a photo shared with her husband, on which they are wearing the same gray T-shirts from 2011 when the Frenchman became GP2 champion.
He can leave the hospital on Tuesday
«Thanks to our children, who drove him to pull himself out of the sea of flames. Thanks to his courage, his tenacity, his strength, his love, his physical constitution, which probably also kept him alive », she shared. And the former Formula 1 TV journalist concluded with the words: “It took not one, but several miracles yesterday. I kiss you.” Romain Grosjean survived the fire accident with burns on the back of both hands. He and Marion have been married since 2012 and they have three children.
The 34-year-old will definitely be delighted by the words. Especially since he is allowed to go back to his wife on Tuesday, and can hug her again. This was announced by the US racing team Haas on Monday after team boss Günther Steiner visited the hospital. The treatments for Grosjean’s burns on the back of both hands would go well. The broken rib turned out to be the wrong diagnosis.
Grosjean is suspending for the first time
Grosjean will not return to the Formula 1 cockpit for the time being. As expected, the 34-year-old Frenchman is taking a break and will not start at the second Bahrain GP on Sunday. The Brazilian Pietro Fittipaldi replaces him. The 24-year-old is the grandson of Formula 1 world champion Emerson Fittipaldi.
