Grosjean Bahrain 2020 F1 Crash 3D Animation Analysis
Did the halo save Romains life? How did the fuel escape the fuel cell? What caused the barrier to give way? Just a few questions you probably wanted answered after that insane crash. Based on videos and trackside images, I produced an animation and give an explanation of what I consider most likely has happened. Enjoy the crashalong!Do you agree with the analysis?

The car hit the safety barrier at over 220 km/h, which broke the middle guardrail. The halo pushed the top guardrail up and away from the cockpit. The fuel cell got punctured and ignited spreading fire over the survival cell. Amazingly, Grosjean stayed conscious (update: oops, he probably also still had a clear conscience). Some 20 seconds after being exposed to flames, Grosjean managed to find a gap behind the barrier and stand up from the cockpit. The total crash from impact to feet hitting the ground took 28 seconds. Disclaimer:In this 3D animation I propose a series of events in a frame-by-frame analysis. I do not claim that this is how the accident actually unfolded. It is just the imagination of a simple mechanical engineer with a fetish for crashes.
