- “It was almost like being born again. Coming out of the flames that day is something that will mark my life forever ”.

- "I think we will have to do some psychological work because I really saw death coming."

Romain groasjean- “Even in Hollywood they can't make images like that. It is the biggest accident I have ever seen in my life. The car caught fire, exploded and the battery also caught fire, so it added a lot of energy to the impact ”.
