  • Palmer was trying to be nice but factual: "Nobody expects that kind of movement." Translation: Get this idiot out of F1 before he kills somebody.

  • 6:07 look how immediate that safety car is. Even in slow motion, that's quick. That kinda response is so critical for situations like this. Props to all the responders for being no nonsense, on their game.

  • What a brilliant and incisive post...thank you Incidentally, I drove Jolyon’s Dad’s car from 1988 in may ONLY be a was only 500 bhp and it had a rev limiter...but getting to 160 mph in a short distance is pretty effin amazing for an average bloke

  • The mirrors in f1 need to be redesigned to also show a wider view as well. Not too difficult for these engineers. It will save lives

  • At last, the incident explained from someone who knows what he's talking about.

  • This is a great analysis nice one jolyon I was sad to see you leave f1 those years ago

  • Can't help but feel this, now the dust has settled but, what an unbelievable error by Grosjean to move across so wildly with cars all around him like that. Glad he survived, but glad he's no longer in F1. He's a danger to everyone.

  • I remember watching this and for a few horrible moments having flashbacks to Imola. Unbelievable how he managed to walk away virtually unscathed.

  • Really nice he got out

  • 7:39 If you look closely enough, you can actually see Romain moving around in the cockpit

  • well the halo debate is now officially over

  • 2020 is too much

  • The greatest moment of this crash is how he managed to unfasten the seat belt and climb out of the burning wreckage and knew how to do it, its just simply a miracle of the modern era. Nothing else explains it, still no one can explain how he got out, only after he got out!!.

  • The marshall coming in from the left at 7:48 with the fire extinguisher was worthless.

    Jim LayJim Lay2 hónapja
  • seems to me this is entirely Grosjean's own fault. Saying theres no point in getting into a blame game is incorrect,.Dont get me wrong, Im delighted he made it out okay, but ultimately its he himself that has caused this by pulling directly across in front of another driver

  • 8:01 1st marshall doesn't know how to distinguish fire with an extinguisher 2nd marshall doesn't know how to arm the extinguisher 3rd marshall is just standing by the car with his extinguisher. There is some potential for improvemend I'd say.

  • The halo did his job but the top onboard camera was responsible for keeping him trapped between the rails, it worked like a hook. Something to think about.

  • Few people expected him to come out alive. A car hitting the barrier at >220km/h, torn in half and engulfed in flames? How could the driver possibly survive? I for one screamed in joyous disbelief when I saw him jumping out.

  • The driving style is totaly different from the 90´s or 80´ s. I remember Keke Rosberg saying as a commentator:"Three cars side by side that is to much"... And this Grosjean guy is such a crash-pilot... He should have known that there is someone in his blind side 17 o'clock position...As F1 driver you simply have to have this instinct. Don´t trust your mirrors alone. Lucky him!

    • After watching the aerial shot again, I can now see the logic of the marshal's approach.

    • He is spraying flame retardant on the fuel that is sprayed all over the road and make sure the fire doesn't spread out..

      Ondrej ČupajOndrej Čupaj2 hónapja
    • i think he did correctly.. give big spray it first and move by the wind direction and then come closer to blow it

  • Jolyon Palmer, are you a fool or are you pretending to be a fool? What a Sebastian Wettle - there is no such driver! There is race car driver Sebastian Vettl! (Fettl) - the letter V - sounds like a "FAU" - "F" in German. Or do you not know that he is German?

  • There is no doubt that the halo was integral to saving Romain’s life. What amazes me is that as a fully frontal impact, and that the car penetrated the barrier, Grosjean didn’t sustain any lower body injuries. Thankfully he didn’t but I was certain that he would have broken his legs due to the impact and how the nose and front of the car disintegrated

  • So basically Grosjean killed himself but the work of the engineers prevented him beeing successful?

    Mad RookyMad Rooky2 hónapja
  • The marshal with an extinguisher behind the wall wasn't close enough to help much until after Grojean was already out, which might have actually helped a little, by not blowing the flames toward the cockpit.

    traxiiitraxiii2 hónapja
  • Grosjean must have a guardian angel with him, he's been in a few crashes and caused a few. He seems a genuinely nice guy, maybe too nice for F1. Side visibility is poor in these cars, time for some type of HUD incorporated into the helmet visor, giving 360 visuals.

  • Absolutely fantastic work from the marshalls, safety team,and doctors. Big fan of formula one, the prevention of tragic accidents is down to the FIA and obviously all the teams where safety is first,no point in being wise afterwards, to romain I wish you a very speedy recovery.

    NikhilNikhil2 hónapja
  • No one discussing the track marshal's lack of knowing how to use fire equipment? You don't spray the top of the fire, you spray at the root. And you need to wait till you are actually at the fire before starting spraying. A bit of a refresher course is in order.
