Formula 1 announced that it will put on display the burnt remains of Romain Grosjean's Haas F1 car that crashed in the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix in March. Grosjean's car crashed and split in half and exploded after hitting the wall at 120 mph. The car has been kept hidden away from the public for three years.
Now after a collaboration between Haas and show exhibitors, the pieces of the burnt car will be displayed for the first time at Formula 1's exhibition in Madrid, Spain. After the accident, Grosjean was able to walk away from the crash and only had minor injuries to his hands, despite the spectacular nature of the fiery wreck.
Formula 1 released a statement addressing this installation which will be part of a special room in the museum called Survival’. Each display in this room will have a special film about the crash. The statement said, “Hosted within a purpose-built room titled ‘Survival’, the chassis will be accompanied by a large video installation showing previously unseen footage of the crash.”
“The room is one of seven unique experiences, each specially designed in collaboration with award-winning curators, artists, and filmmakers to offer a stunning adventure through the world of Formula 1.”
The 36-year-old Romain Grosjean is part of the IndyCar circuit in the US, talked about the accident in a short film. He said, “From my point of view, it was a big accident but I didn’t realise the impact or how violent it was from the outside. “It was only the next day when I asked someone to show me what it looked like that I realised.
