The tremendous accident that the French starred in Romain Grosjean at Bahrain Grand Prix de F1 He made time go back and remember a time of the Maximum in which this type of incident did not always end with the pilot leaving by his own means, as was the case of the team rider Haas.
The Argentine engineer Sergio rinland, who for a few years has been based in Great Britain, likened it to the one that cost the Frenchman his life Francois cevert at United States GP of 1973.
"I thought about the Cevert accident because from what I know it was very similar"Rinland told Diego durruty in a chat via Skype and that you can already see on the channel Automundo en YouTube.
