Grosjean meets a terrible accident, almost encountering death

The start of the F1 race is always chaotic, particularly in the back half of the grid, and so it was proved on Sunday when after turn three, the Haas VF-20 driven by Romain went off track to the right.

First-lap collisions, unlike what happened next, are not that rare in the sport. 

During the race at Bahrain Grand Prix, Romain Grosjean's car snapped in half after reaching the guardrail at around 137mph (220km/h) and then burst into flames, something that hasn't happened for over 30 years

The impact was measured to be 53G causing the car to disassemble

The fire caused by the crash was also quickly extinguished.

It was very unusual for a modern F1 car to split in half like that. 

The engine in these cars bolts to the carbon fiber monocoque chassis

In crashes like these, the two bolts with rupture, and the two halves will spill

Grosjean will be replaced by test and backup driver Pietro Fittipaldi, grandson of Brazil's double world champion Emerson Fittipaldi, at the Sakhir Grand Prix in Bahrain next weekend to ensure that he recovers properly.

He is going to be discharged from the hospital on Tuesday.

The FIA is to initiate an inquiry, and it will be thorough and include any party involved with the race owner, Michael Masi

The FIA security department directs the investigation with every incident, but more so with every major incident, he said.

Meanwhile, people on social media are showing lots of good wishes to Grosjean.

The racer even addressed it to Twitter, thanking his fans for their lovely wishes and that he can't wait to get better and back on the track

He has revealed that he thought about his kids during the crash and that motivated him to escape. He also said, he must live for his kids, a very emotional statement from a brave driver.
