The safety package introduced into Formula 1 back in 2018 paid dividends for Romain Grosjean in the Bahrain Grand Prix. Anything else would have amounted to his death for sure. The Halo saved his life and goes to show that Formula 1 drivers are highly skilled and yet depend on the safety of their cars. God speed your recovery Romain
Back to the race however and Lewis Hamilton continued his run of flags winning the Bahrain Grand Prix from Max Verstappen. With two races to finish the Formula 1 season, there’s no argument that Hamilton couldn’t finish on the top step for 7th consecutive time. And what a result that would be not only for Lewis, but the whole Silver Arrows team
Today is a reminder for all of us that this is a dangerous sport.
It was shocking to see Romain’s accident and I’m just so grateful that the Halo did its job and credit to the FIA medical team who were straight on the scene. For Romain to be able to walk away from an accident like that just shows what an incredible job F1 and the FIA have done in their quest for safety.
Physically it was such a demanding race. Max pushed me all the way and he had a lot of speed today. I was struggling a little bit with the car sliding around, but I just had enough to be able to respond to Max’s quick laps when it mattered. I was a little cautious how it would play out at the end of the race once Max pitted, but I’m so thankful to my team because they made the right calls all day on the strategy. What a privilege it is to be able to get another result like this.
