 A night to forget

In the opening laps of the Bahrain Grand Prix last season, the then Haas driver had a collision with Alpha Tauri’s Daniil Kvyat, which sent the Frenchman through the barriers, breaking his car in half and engulfed in flames.

Thankfully Grosjean didn’t have severe injuries and has fully recovered, and now is doing some online sim racing and spending quality time with his family after his season ended in Formula One.

Grosjean still has a drive

The French driver may have ended his season in a horrible way but that has not stopped him from pursuing glory on the track. In 2021 Grosjean will be joining Dale Coyne Racing and will contest in 13 races both street and circuit. The 34-year-old told SkySports, “I’m very excited for this opportunity.”
