“Well, it was quite scary, to use a very simple word. It was impressive because seconds at that moment last hours. So, to wait so many seconds before seeing Romain getting out from the fire has been very tense.”

The incident sparked a debate about the safety of F1 drivers

"And the chassis of Romain Grosjean (burned) just a couple of years ago shows, if you look around this place, what has been done from the first day of Formula One up to today. But this is a sign that we cannot stop, a sign that, you know, safety is first for the drivers, for the marshal, for the official, for the public, for the teams. So, it's at the center of our project for sure.”
