Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean was operated on his hands after his fire accident in Bahrain, the Frenchman announced on social networks. “The thumb band on the left hand was damaged in the accident and we have to get the burn from the wounds. The right hand is also being treated after an injury from early 2020. Must be a new man tomorrow.”
Grosjean jokes with his fans
“Everything went well,” the 34-year-old wrote on Twitter after the procedure, showing his sense of humor again on Wednesday morning. “A good night’s sleep and not too much pain. On the other hand, writing on my phone is a real torture,” Grosjean joked on Instagram.
Serious accident in Bahrain
Grosjean had an accident at the Bahrain Grand Prix shortly after the start more than two weeks ago. His car smashed into a crash barrier and went up in flames. Grosjean had just escaped from the cockpit and was mostly unharmed. He then skipped the last two races of the year.
He has to leave the Haas team at the end of the year. Mick Schumacher and Nikita Masepin will drive there in the future.
