According to some Formula One sources, Romain Grosjean lost control of his Haas car in turn two 
and rammed the guardrails at around 250 km / h. But according to replays, after a collision with Daniil Kvyat, he shifted the gearbox to seven, meaning that he crashed at a speed of 270-280 km / h. By another Formula One source’s information, the driver only had 20 seconds
Sky Sports estimated that there were 18-20 seconds between the point of impact and Grosjean emerging from the flames. The mangled and charred front half of the car, from which Grosjean managed to escape on his own, was embedded in the track side barriers.

Formula 1 Halo system 

As many times I told Halo looks not harmonious with the car as  much I’m glad Formula 1 cars have Halo system at all.

After horror replays of fire, Alan van der Merwe, the medical car driver, told Sky Sports: 
“In 12 years I’ve never seen that much fire,”
“Then Romain just started to get out of the car himself, which is pretty amazing after an incident like that.
“It just goes to show all the systems, the halo, the barriers, the seat belt, all worked as they should. Without even one of those things it could have been a very different outcome.”
