Formula One champion Louis Hamilton won the crash-mard Bahrain Grand Prix, where Romain Grosjean escaped with some minor burns after his car exploded in a fireball.
The Frenchman’s Haas car split in half and sank into flames, soon after it opened through defensive barriers, following contact with Daniel Quiet’s Alfatouri.
A spokesman for the governing body FIA said the impact had weighed more than 50g.
“[Romain] Is stable and is being taken to MDF MC Military Hospital by helicopter for further evaluation, ”the governing body said.

Drivers and team members stood and applauded as they watched Grosjean climb over the barrier for safety and spray with a fire extinguisher.

The accident happened when Grosszine lost control and slipped to the right, where his rear wheel was clipped to the front of Daniel Quatt’s alpha-tauri and he flew into the obstacle.
During that time, seven-time F1 champion Hamilton led Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Racing Point’s Sergio Perez.
Authorities quickly worked to build a temporary crash barrier where the old one had collapsed.
Canada’s Stroll was not injured in the special crash
Hamilton was suppressed and did not celebrate his victory after getting out of his car, except for a brief fist-pump with Red Bull drivers.
“It’s a very shocking image to watch … terrible. It can be very bad,” Hamilton said. “I respect the dangers in this sport.”
