The race was halted seconds after its start, and the accident occurred after Grojan’s car collided with the car of Alfa Tauri’s driver Daniel Kviat.
The 34-year-old French driver, who managed to free himself from his seat belt and get out of the wreckage of the car after breaking through a roadblock, was taken to a military hospital near the track for checks.
Grogan remained in hospital to treat burns to his hands, while X-rays revealed that he had not suffered fractures, and British 1996 World Champion Damon Hill said, “It is a miracle that he was alive.”
FIA medical chief Ian Roberts rushed to help Grogan as a rescue team put out the car’s blazing flames.
A spokesman for the International Automobile Federation said the accident equaled the pressure of gravity by more than 50 times, and Grogan’s Haas team explained that the car’s speed was 221 kilometers per hour when the accident occurred.
The start of the race was postponed for 80 minutes as supervisors repaired the barriers and removed the wreckage of the car. After the race resumed, Canadian Lance Stroll had an accident in which his car overturned after a collision with a cavity.
The Canadian driver exited without injuries and the safety car descended into the track to drive away the Racing Point.
Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, who won the Bahrain race, said he was grateful that Roman is safe, and stressed that the risk drivers are taking is no joke, as they put their lives on the line in the sport for what they love to do.
This is the 95th victory in the career of the British driver, Hamilton, while Max Verstappen, the driver of Red Bull, came second in front of his colleague Alexander Albon, who snatched third place after the withdrawal of Mexican Racing Point driver Sergio Perez, due to an engine problem.
