Halloween has been a fun season for Formula 1 drivers. As everybody played dress-up, former F1 driver Romain Grosjean took a slightly different route. Just being himself, things took a gory turn for the driver.

The Phoenix‘s emergence from the flames is an image everyone is well acquainted with. A miraculous feat for the driver, he left the ball of flames having only burned his hands. For Halloween, his wife fixed the problem with his hands… sort of.

For the spooky season, the couple posed for pictures as Grosjean’s wife, Marion Jolles, pretended to cut his hand off with a prop chainsaw. She hilariously captioned the images: “And there goes work. No more burning problem.”

The joke was both clever and hilarious, especially with Grosjean’s expressions! A perfect gag for the Halloween season.

Romain Grosjean faces competition in the couples-costume category

Romain Grosjean wasn’t the only one who took his Halloween idea seriously. Kimi Raikkonen paired up with his wife for a ghouly night with the kids! He decorated his house with the usual Halloween trinkets, complete with a skeleton sitting in an Alpha Romeo monocoque.

The Raikkonen family went the Disney route, with Mintu Raikkonen as Cruella. Kimi and his ‘ice cubes’ were the well-behaved dalmatians for “Raikoween”.

AlphaTauri‘s Pierre Gasly entered the category as well, going for a comparatively simple option. Gasly and his girlfriend, Katerina, celebrated Halloween at a masquerade. Gasly looked like the Phantom of the opera, while Katerina completed her look with a bunny mask.

Almost a year since the crash, the last year has been revolutionary for Grosjean. Having left F1 after the incident, the Frenchman made his way to IndyCar. In his rookie season, the former Haas driver has had an incredibly successful season.

Having solidified his time with Andretti Motorsport in the American series, Grosjean looked back on his reroute in the last year. “The whole year has been incredible, and that’s what I tell myself every day. From where you come from to where you are today, just be grateful. Since the (F1) crash, I’ve seen life differently. Being able to race for Andretti, being able to represent DHL… I’m proud of my work.”
