Romain Grosjean claimed 10 podiums during a career that included some electric highs but also some terrifying lows. In our latest edition of Lights to Flag, the ever-candid Frenchman opens up about his time in Formula 1 with Renault, Lotus, and Haas, his Bahrain crash – and his re-energising move to IndyCar.
