The remains of the chassis, which split in half on impact, had been kept under wraps for the past three years and is now placed in a dedicated room labelled as ‘survival’ with previously unreleased footage of the crash.

Romain Grosjean survived this fiery crash at the Bahrain GP that saw his Haas car crash through an Armco barrier. The Halo showed signs of damage from the barrier that would otherwise have been inflicted on Grosjean’s helmet, and is certain to have saved his life.

The halo head-protection device has been one of the single biggest success stories of Formula 1’s constant quest to improve safety since the death of Ayrton Senna in 1994.
