The accident of Roman Grosjean. Bahrain Grand Prix. 2020.

The first round of the race in Bahrain. Roman Grosjean sharply takes to the right, but the rear wheel catches Daniil Kvyat’s AlphaTauri. After that, the Frenchman’s Haas crashes into a protective metal barrier at almost a right angle.

Upon impact, the car breaks into two pieces. The monocoque, together with the pilot, literally pierces the barrier, and the rear part with the engine flies off to the side. Fuel flashes.

Fortunately, the pilot did not lose consciousness after such a blow and managed to get out of the burning cockpit.
