Grosjean crashes on first IndyCar test

The former F1 driver was having his first test in an IndyCar since joining the series after leaving Haas F1 team at the end of last season.

Romain Grosjean has suffered a crash on his first outing in an IndyCar testing for Dale Coyne Racing at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. The driver reportedly spun into the tyre wall at Turn 1, and despite the car being hit with some damage the Dale Coyne Racing crew managed to get the French driver back on track. Thankfully Grosjean, who suffered serious burns after his horror crash in the Formula 1 Sakhir Grand Prix last year, was unharmed. Below is a picture of the accident scene:
