Video: Grosjean crashes in IndyCar qualifying

After crashing out of the Indy 500 last weekend, Romain Grosjean found the barriers once again in qualifying for this weekend's Detroit Grand Prix.

Former F1 driver Romain Grosjean crashed during Saturday's qualifying session for the IndyCar Detroit Grand Prix at Belle Isle.

On a flying lap, the Frenchman tapped the outside wall with his left-rear tyre, and the resulting damage to his suspension pitched him sideways into the wall at the following corner.

Grosjean was uninjured in the accident and will start Sunday's race from 12th position, with Josef Newgarden heading up the grid.

Grosjean's crash is his second in as many IndyCar race weekends, with the Frenchman having retired on lap 105 of last week's Indy 500 after clouting the Turn 2 wall at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
