The enduring image of the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix will be a driver miraculously emerging from the flames as part of his destroyed car is clamped between a failed barrier.
That Romain Grosjean jumped clear of the fireball that had engulfed the front of his Haas – the rear left trackside, completely separate from the rest – is astonishing. That he did so with only minor burns to his hands and feet is quite another.
And it’s the moment that will forever define what was actually quite a dramatic race in its own right, for the right reasons beyond that incident.
