Grosjean crashes out on way to Sao Paulo grid

13 Nov 2016

Romain Grosjean will not be starting Sunday’s Formula 1 Grande Premio do Brasil 2016 after spinning into the wall on his first lap out of the pits at a very wet Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace.

Grosjean, who had qualified a season-best seventh at Interlagos, lost control heading up the hill into the final turn, hitting the barrier and causing significant damage to his car’s front-left suspension. The Frenchman was unhurt in the incident.

With conditions this treacherous, it is highly likely the race - which could decide the 2016 drivers’ title - will begin behind the safety car on full-wet tyres. The start has currently been delayed by 10 minutes by race officials.
