I am sure the medical team is critically assessing GRO's anatomy for internal injuries....this (what appears to be) unsurvivable deceleration (G's) can often cause torn or damaged blood vessels, brain damage and so much more.

I did hear that they're sending him to the hospital via helicopter to be checked. They say likely broken rib(s), understandably.

The car penetrating the barrier looked much like Francois Cevert's fatality at the 1973 USGP at Watkins Glen....it is just incredible how the safety of the car's survival cell has advanced over the years.

Romain even lost his boot in the crash. A Miracle that he wasn't knocked out by the impact.
In fact he got out of the cell himself. I doubt He would have survived had he been unconscious.
Horror crash..

Does the onboard telemetry report real-time crash data....G forces of impact??

GRO had to release his safety belt by himself and he just walked out of a sea of fire !
His fuel tank was completely filled , which transformed the HAAS in a bomb !
I have no words for the remains of the cockpit...I can not believe GRO was able to escape from the cockpit in flames by himself !
The man is a hero !!

GRO has broken ribs ...

Worst accident I've seen in years. I was at Indy in 2017 and about 150 meters away when Bordais crashed into the wall at turn 3 breaking both of his legs. I could feel the heat flash when it occurred and the crash today was 10 times worse.

It was the fuel collector box that flared which is about 3 gallons of fuel. Had it been the entire cell he would have died.

The obvious question for the FIA is, how to prevent this level of impact at this location on-track.
An observation....the massive shunt occurred on a straight, but the barrier is angled at an appx 30 degree closing radius.

I presume the FIA will require the same deceleration barriers that currently exist at the usual-suspect runoff areas at this location.

From what I heard his fuel tank was completely ripped open ..
In the first sec. of the crash and explosion , I was convinced a driver died today..
I'm not religious , but it was a miracle !
As I said GRO is a hero...

Yes. And the fuel tank is actually a thick rubber bag located directly behind the survival cell.

One thing to note is that Grosjean is one of the people to thank for the introduction of the halo... along with Vettel, Wurz and Whiting.

What he did is perfectly fine on another driver but not on his teammate. Thus, a cunt.
