Grosjean survives huge wreck on Lap 1 of Bahrain GP (Update)

Grosjean has been sent to the hospital for minor burns and possible broken ribs.  He is otherwise OK.

He is one lucky man!

A succession of replays have highlighted just how terrifying a moment that truly was. A massive credit is due to the marshals who were on the scene incredibly quickly to put those flames out.

The car burst into flames and the cockpit pierced the steel barrier and if not for the F1 Halo he would have likely been decapitated.
