Hello !

News about Romain Grosjean.

Two days after his terrible accident in Bahrain, Romain Grosjean hoped
to return to F1 for the last GP of the season in Abu Dhabi next Sunday. Unfortunately
the French driver underestimated the state of his hands burned with fire. Those
were not superficial injuries.

In a statement on Twitter, Romain announced that he will not resume
competition this season for very understanding health reasons. Therefore
he is forced to end his career in F1.

We knew that Grosjean would no longer be part of the Haas F1 team next year.
Unfortunately, his career ended in tragic conditions.

It is too early to talk about Romain's future. We knew that he was looking forward
to being at the wheel of a F1 again. But he didn't know if this return would excite
him or traumatize him.

Anyway, we wish him a speedy recovery and good luck for the rest of his career.

Grosjean rules out Abu Dhabi Grand Prix return - published on the US site of
Motorsport.com (Grosjean's announcement on Twitter is available on this page).

Despite Hamilton and Mercedes dominating everything, I really enjoyed this season. There were a lot of storylines and a lot of good moments. I'm really looking forward to seeing how McLaren perform next year with Lando & Ricciardo. That's going to be fun to watch.

Although the schedule changes were due to the COVID issues this year, I enjoyed the back to back races at the same track.

Honestly, aside from the Hamilton dominance, this season was very enjoyable. Definitely the most entertaining F1 season I've watched in quite a while. It had new winners (Gasly and Perez), feelgood stories (Hulkenburg and Russel), and plenty of drama (Racing Point's 'copying' ordeal, Grosjean's miraculous escape, and much more).

Hello !

More news about Romain Grosjean.

I saw him on French TV last week. He was on a live TV talk show - via Skype - from
his home in Switzerland.

He is much better and is resting with his family. He says he's thinking about his future.
He did not decide to end his motorsport career. (Not yet ?)

Yesterday, Romain underwent hands surgery Everything went well.

Maybe not F1.. I'm sure GTs/Sportscars at Le Mans/WEC could be an option for Grosjean.

Hello !

News about Romain Grosjean's future.

Among the options considered by the Frenchman
- before his accident - were Formula E and Endurance
(it is rumoured that he could take part in Peugeot's
return to the WEC in 2022)

In November, just before the Turkish GP,
Grosjean told the press that he was in negotiations with
several IndyCar teams.

I still have to decide if I should go back and forth or
if I am going to settle in the United States. I have a family, I have
three children and raising our children is very important to me
and my wife. What interest me the most about IndyCar is that everyone
uses a Dallara chassis, which creates a certain level of equality.
The downside is that I don't know the IndyCar series well enough. I only
know the circuits that I saw on television. So I have a lot to learn.


Is he still afraid of oval racing?

I know I've expressed my concerns about the Indycar series
on several occasions, but that was only for the oval races,
and there aren't many more on the
calendar.

This is just a translation of excerpts from an interview with the French driver:
Romain Grosjean en discussion avec des équipes d'Indycar, published
on the French website ActuF1 on November 12th 2020.
https://www.actuf1.com/article/396291

Grosjean can put "fear aside" to race on ovals in IndyCar next year

In addition, we know that Romain did not want to leave F1 in
the circumstances that we know in Bahrain. He hoped to take the
wheel of the Haas in Abu Dhabi one last time. His physical
condition did not allow it. There is now little chance that
he will drive a F1 in competition again. However, Toto Wolf -
team principal & CEO of Mercedes F1 Team - is willing to offer
Romain a private test in F1. The Frenchman would thus bid
farewell to F1 without keeping the only memory of his crash as
his last outing.

Joining Peugeot's return as a works driver would be good for him.

The Australian GP has been moved to be the 21st race of the season and the season will instead start at Bahrain. Also, the Chinese GP has been postponed. Imola returns to the schedule to take its place.
