The halo, which was developed after the death of Jules Bianchi, clearly did its job in protecting Grosjean yesterday. I could not believe that anyone could have survived that ball of flames.

I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

And to think that Grosjean was one of the drivers opposed to the halo!

No doubt.. if that crash happened in the 90's he would have been a statistic. The development of safety in the sport is really spectacular.

I would not call F1 "sport" anymore. it is more like chess.

The entire event could have been avoided if the track designer did not put steel armco so close to the racetrack.
