Geneva (AP) – Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean has had his hands operated after his fire accident in Bahrain. As the Frenchman announced on social networks, he had a ligament injury to his left thumb.
In addition, burns had to be cleaned. The previous Haas driver also had to undergo treatment on his right hand at the beginning of the year after an injury. “Everything went well,” the 34-year-old wrote after the procedure.
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.
