F1 2020: Bahrain GP, Romain Grosjean crash, fireball, halo, reaction, results, video

Published

Race officials and drivers praised the modern safety systems developed for Formula One on Sunday after Romain Grosjean survived a high-speed crash and fireball blaze on the opening lap of the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Safety and official medical car driver Alan van der Merwe was on the scene within seconds as he followed the field after the start of the race and along with chief medical officer Dr Ian Roberts they battled the blaze to save Grosjean’s life.

“It’s a miracle that he’s alive,” said 1996 world champion Damon Hill, who was Ayrton Senna’s team-mate at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix when the Brazilian was killed.

Frenchman Cyril Abiteboul is leaving Renault, where he was Formula One team principal, the company announced on Monday in a press release.

Laurent Rossi, director of strategy and business development for Renault, will take over the motor sports unit which will be rebranded Alpine.

The Formula One team, which is based in Enstone in England, will replace its predominantly yellow livery with the red, white and blue of the French flag.

Daniel Ricciardo has cheekily fooled fans after being roasted for what appeared to be a poor example of geography knowledge from the Aussie F1 star.

Ricciardo has been on holiday in the United States during the season break, taking time off before he gets back behind the wheel this year in new colours.
