  • Can’t tell you how relieved I was to see Romain climb out of his car, and well done to the marshalls and medical staff. According to the helicopter footage I make it 29.5 seconds that romain was engulfed in flames; that racing suit must be made of mithril or something. Anyway, glad to see him talking from his hospital bed. I can understand that they wrapped his hands up pretty quickly to give him the best chance of recovery. But if those burns are bad he won’t be back in the car next week.

  • I can’t think of a worse accident since Helmut Koinigg in 1974, he was incredibly lucky and he would’ve 100% been killed without the halo
