Romain Grosjean has been discharged from hospital three days after the violent accident that left him with burns to his hands.
Grosjean suffered a 137mph accident, recorded at 53G, with the barriers at the start of Formula 1’s Bahrain Grand Prix, which split the car in two, bursting into flames.
Grosjean was able to extricate himself from the burning wreckage but was transported to the medical centre and then to Bahrain Defence Force Hospital.
Grosjean spent three nights in hospital but was released on Wednesday morning.
He will continue private treatment for the burns suffered on the back of his hands and will remain in Bahrain for the time being.
Grosjean and Haas F1 Team both extended their thanks to the medical crew at the hospital.
Grosjean will sit out this weekend’s Sakhir Grand Prix but has targeted a return to action for what is currently set to be his last outing in Formula 1, and at Haas, in Abu Dhabi.
Haas reserve driver Pietro Fittipaldi will race for the team this weekend.
