Grosjean was trapped in his flaming Haas for 28 seconds after his crash in Bahrain

Grosjean’s car split in two and instantly burst into flames.

The Swiss-Frenchman was only saved by his Haas’ halo device and his racing suit, new for the 2020 season and designed to withstand flames for 20 seconds.

Grosjean confessed he ‘saw death coming’ after smashing through the safety barriers.

But he has shown off his miraculous recovery on Instagram, sharing an image of himself enjoying a cuddle with pet cat Petrus.

So painful-looking are his injuries even to this days, Grosjean even included a warning to followers before swiping through his latest upload.

Grosjean captioned the post: “My hands are back and Petrus isn’t too unhappy about it!

“It’s not yet pretty so please don’t swipe right if you don’t feel like it.”

Shortly after his crash, Grosjean described his escape as a ‘second birth’.

Grosjean miraculously survived with only nasty burns to his hands

He said: “To come out of the flames that day is something that will mark my life forever.

“I have a lot of people who have shown me love and it has touched me a lot, and at times I get a bit teary-eyed.

“I don’t know if the word miracle exists or if it can be used, but in any case I would say it wasn’t my time [to die].

“It felt much longer than 28 seconds. I saw my visor turning all orange, I saw the flames on the left side of the car.

“I thought about a lot of things, including Niki Lauda, and I thought that it wasn’t possible to end up like that, not now. I couldn’t finish my story in Formula One like that.

“And then, for my children, I told myself that I had to get out. I put my hands in the fire, so I clearly felt it burning on the chassis.

“I got out, then I felt someone pulling on the suit, so I knew I was out.”

Grosjean has three children – Sacha, Simon and daughter Camile – with wife Marion.

And he revealed his desire to get back to his family helped him escape.

Grosjean confessed: “I was more afraid for my relatives, my children in the first place, but also my father and my mother.

“I was not really afraid for myself. I saw death coming, I had no other option but to get out of there.”
