Romain Grosjean became the victim of a terrible accident in Formula One. After more than two months, he will announce on Wednesday morning that he will readjust his career to meet the IndyCar series of events.
Grosjean would not have participated in the four games of the season organized in an oval layout, which he has never ridden before, and he has always thought (not unreasonably) dangerous.
One of them is the Indianapolis 500 Mile Classic on May 30th.
Grosjean’s F1 race came to a halt on November 29 when his car caught fire after a sharp turn at the start of the Bahrain Grand Prix. Although these amazing images made them feel most frightened, we saw him addicted to his car a few seconds after the impact.
Grosjean was described as a miracle. His hands and left foot were burned.
A few weeks ago, he learned that his contract with the Haas team was not renewed for 2021. He knows that therefore does not include returning to F1.
In order to heal the injury, he handed over the steering wheel to Pietro Fittipaldi of Brazil in the last two games of the season.
In 10 seasons, Grojean started 179 races in Renault (2009), Lotus (2012 to 2015) and Haas (2016 to 2020) teams. If his record shows 10 podium finishes, then he has never climbed to the top again. Both times (Montreal in 2012 and Austin in 2013), he won the best results in second place.
Since its first release a few months ago, the 2021 IndyCar series calendar has undergone several revisions. The pandemic may force its leaders to reorganize it again in the coming weeks. July 11 is the only stop in Canada, and the Toronto game may not be held like last year.
