The shock after Romain Grosjean's violent accident is not quite out of the bones, as Formula 1 begins to deal with the dramatic events.
The racing series has rejected criticism from drivers like Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo of the repetition of the fire scenes from Grosjean's accident in Bahrain.
A spokesman for the motorsport premier class told the internet portal “motorsport.com” on Monday: “No repetitions of an accident will be shown until the approval and confirmation from the race management / Fia is given that all persons (drivers, marshals, doctors etc. .) are safe.
Repetitions were only started afterwards. ”Strict protocols were always followed.
Ferrari driver Vettel suspected that people would like to see scenes like this.
“Otherwise the director or whoever is editing wouldn't show it over and over again.
People like accidents, sometimes they forget that we are behind the wheel, ”said Vettel.

Formula 1 sports director Ross Brawn explained on Monday that the producers of the racing series only sent the recordings when they knew that "Romain was safe, which corresponds to our protocol."
Grosjeans wife comments
After the crash on Sunday, Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo complained that he wanted to express his "disgust and disappointment" with Formula 1.
“The way they showed the Grosjean incident over and over, the repetition, it was completely disrespectful and inconsiderate for his family, for all of our families who watched.” Grosjean survived his accident largely unscathed.
For Marion Grosjean this is more than a miracle.
Her husband is a superhero, at least that's how they explained it to the three children.
“Several miracles were necessary,” writes the 38-year-old in the social networks in view of the dramatic images of the burning Formula 1 car.
