Romain Grosjean is leading his first official test in the IndyCar series today. In addition, he wears a special helmet: the one that his kids designed for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix last season.
The Frenchman had to miss the final part of the Formula 1 year due to his terrifying crash in Bahrain two weeks ago. Grosjean collided with the crash barrier at the Bahrain International Circuit at high speed, after which his car broke in two and caught fire. The 34-year-old vanished in a wildfire, but managed to escape on his own after 28 seconds. He suffered severe burns to his hands, but thankfully he survived relatively well.
