Formula 1 a few seconds ago

"I've never seen so much fire in a crash in twelve years," said Alan van der Merwe, the driver of the medical car that brought Romain Grosjean to safety.

"It took me a second to realize what had happened and then luckily Romain came out himself, which is unbelievable. That was quite a relief for us. All the safety systems helped him today, from the halo to the seat belts."

    An incident at the start is not a rarity in Bahrain.

    Fear that this will be another race where the tension depends on the start.

    Oops, there is a cat on the track.

    The second training had to be stopped on Friday because a dog was walking on the track.

    Apparently just like @autodromoimola the Bahrain circuit has a cat.

    When the engines started just now he / she jumped over the fence from the pitlane and disappeared into the paddock ...:

    Verstappen reports on his way to the grid that a red and a yellow light are flashing on his dashboard.

    The signal would have to do with his brake balance.
