Following the spectacular Formula 1 crash of Romain Grosjean in the GP of Bahrain, Alain Prost had strong words to describe this terrible crash.
While the Frenchman still suffers from burns on his hands, he has already made it known that he would now get more involved in improving the safety of the drivers in F1, after having seen the death up close.
Many names in Formula 1 have been deeply moved by Romain Grosjean’s accident, including Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and George Russell. The new boss of Renault and four-time world champion Alain Prost also made clear his feelings.
In an interview for Le Parisien, Alain Prost reacted to Romain Grosjean’s terrible accident. “It gives you goosebumps, it’s obvious
“I saw it in a different way than you do, thinking about what we went through in my time. Without being sordid, there have also been terrible accidents in the past.
“It is obvious that F1 remains a very dangerous sport. The halo, I wasn’t a big fan of it from an aesthetic point of view. For safety yes, OK. But for aesthetics, it wasn’t great.
“But you can see how it saved Romain’s life, so we must always be open to improving safety”.
