Grosjean: I can hardly wait to be back behind the wheel

Romain Grosjean says that his hands are recovering well and that he is almost back to being at 100%. The French driver is also hoping to get back behind the wheel of a racecar soon.

Frenchman Romain Grosjean says he is recovering well and that he almost has full functionality of his hands.

Former Haas driver Romain Grosjean suffered a horrific crash at last season's Bahrain Grand Prix where his car hit a barrier so violently that it split in two and caught fire. Despite the ferocity of the impact, Grosjean was able to walk away from the incident with only his hands being burnt due to the inferno. The French driver says he has almost recovered fully.

"My hands are recovering well, I have almost my full functionality back," Grosjean told Autosprint UK.

"Even though the exercises with the hand hurt a little, I give it my all every time. However, I cannot complain after such a big and violent accident.

"I can only thank heaven that it ended like this. Now I take the positive spirit with me and see the improvement every day. I am almost 100% again.

"However, I will only see if I am fully recovered when I get behind the wheel again, then we will see if I am also mentally fully back. You never know how the head will react.

"Still, I am looking forward to the moment that it comes, I can hardly wait for it as much as I would like to sit behind the wheel again."
