He nearly burned to death in his F1 car six months ago, now Romain Grosjean plays for firefighter himself

Do you remember Romain Grosjean? The Franco-Swiss pilot crashed badly during the Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix last year and then miraculously escaped from a huge conflagration. Today Grosjean is active in the United States in the IndyCar championship, and during the second race in Detroit on Sunday, he provided striking images by helping to extinguish his burning car.

Grosjean had to give up when the brakes of his car caught fire. The Frenchman climbed out of his car and immediately went looking for a fire extinguisher to extinguish the fire. He found it at the nearest track post, after which Grosjean sprinted back to his car to put out the fire. That task was soon taken over by the responsible marshals.

Grosjean could laugh about it afterwards. “I care about my racing cars,” it sounded laconically on Twitter. His extinguishing work also earned him a T-shirt from the Detroit Fire Department.
