Romain Grosjean will switch from F1 to IndyCar for 2021, having signed a deal with Dale Coyne Racing. But he changed his mind on doing a full season after his fireball F1 crash in the Bahrain Grand Prix. In this video Scott Mitchell has all the details of Grosjean’s 2021 plans, how his recovery is going from the burns he sustained last year, and the latest on his hopes to test a Mercedes as a way of saying goodbye to F1

Classy move by Toto. Nobody’s last time in an F1 seat should be a crash. I hope he fares well in Indycar.

Yeah let's put one of the most dangerous F1 drivers ever into an indy car, that's bound to turn out alright. Can't wait for him to try and do a smoke filled 360 on an oval.

I definitely prefer IndyCar to F1, it's about 10 years that I follow it with more interest than F1, so I am curious to see Grosjean in this new challenge. He has the opportunity to show his real talent. Cars are for the 95% the same and made for overtakes; tracks are tough and there is an hard competition. On the other side, if he failed, he can't hide behind the usual F1 excuse about the lack of prestaction of the car and the gap between major teams. It's not so easy for an F1 driver

TBH I haven't really rated Romain as a "top driver" for many years, partly because of the many crashes he has had ( a lot of which he was majorly or even wholly to blame ) but also because of his willingness to quickly lay blame on others & his quick temper & yet I have developed a deep respect for him for his openness & willingness to apologise & admit when he was wrong, usually after seeing an incident in replay as this is obviously his first chance to see the full scenario of what happened. I was, like most of the world, horrified by his accident in Bahrain & broke down when I saw that he managed to escape alive with "relatively minor" injuries & was deeply touched by his praise for Doctor Ian Roberts & Alan van der Merwe as well as the two marshals, Thaer Ali Taher & Joby Mathew who were majorly involved in his rescue. I am so pleased he has been able to secure a seat in Indy & hope he does manage to organise the test day with Mercedes in the W11 as promised by Toto Wolff & obviously hope he will continue to recover from his injuries & enjoy his time in Indy with the Dale Coyne Racing team. Good Luck Romain, stay safe.

Grosjean has always been a bad driver, at least in F1. I am shocked that HAAS kept him for as long as they did. He crashed himself due to error.

Personally I think F1 drivers are too good for oval racing and oval racing does seem like a major step down, but that is just my opinion, but anyway I do hope that Grosjean can finally be on the front row and fighting for wins and championships

maybe he could also try Icelandic cliff climbing car racing? At least if he didn't make it up a run and crashed, it wouldn't really matter as that's just a feature of that particular sport.

Solid driver who got a fair bit of smack following his somewhat novel way on the track. In the light of some competitors doing similar antics I think he was treated worse. Considering his speed I don't think he ever got the right machinery to show his talent. It's easy to bash, but let's not forget where he put the Haas in 2017.

A scared driver is a dangerous driver! These guys need balls of steel to drive on the very edge of whats possible, a driver whos not on that edge will be no good as they will be facing every other driver whos driving on the very limit, being scared of what might happen seems to me that their just waiting for their next big accident! I think that once a driver has lost that fine line of driving on the edge and ignoring the dangers is not only dangerous to himself but to other drivers who drive their cars expecting the drivers around him to be on the edge too, a nervous driver is an accident waiting to happen, Grogeion should hang up his gloves and boots and either work in the side lines of motorsport or try get his mojo back and then go race at the same level as the other motosport professonals who live on the edge when it comes to driving skills

I'm thrilled for him. I think they already have a house in Charlotte, NC where HAAS is, But Coyne Racing is near Chicago. Lots of older drivers who fall off the end of F1 end up in indycar. Can he win? Well he'll have to beat that other, too old, no control, too wild F1 reject, Takuma Sato. Ask Takuma or other rejects Alexander Rossi and they will tell you two things... If you're fsst you can earn a good living in Indycar... and as much as it will hurt ya'll - getting the maximum out of a car, lap after lap on the knife edge of an oval is more difficult than a road course - Emerson said so too!

Romain should retire. When you have close calls like this, its not many drivers that come back from this without incident. He will be putting himself in major danger and I do not think it a wise choice.

Sometimes yes, occasionally on a short track where aero doesn't mean much victory is still possible.... But the way he struggled with brakes, I can't see him doing too well there either. On a superspeedway you can win without brakes... but you need good aero.... Short oval with no brakes.... hello fence HARD!

The guy almost gave his life up for the “sport” - you’d think they (Haas & F1) would have given him another year to prove himself, granted I don’t believe he’s ever won a GP race, but the guy always drove hard and gave it everything his ride / team gave him...I just think it’s a damned shame the way F1 teams treat their drivers - do you think Lewis or Sebastian would win in a Haas? I don’t think so...I hope Roman does well in Indy cars - proves to everyone in the big money making machine that F1 has become that a real race car driver doesn’t need F1 to be successful...just my opinion. So Go Roman Go! And just a question why does F1 keep pulling full races from SElosk? You’d think that they’d at least allow us fans who’ve been watching and following for decades (5 decades for me) something to remember exactly why we fell in love with the sport years ago and maybe draw in new fans at the same time? But I guess it’s all about the $$$$$$$

Indycar fan: I'm excited to have Grosjean come and join the league. His driving style has shown more success in indycar compared to F1. He's a great personality, and seems to so far enjoy the indycar culture. Coyne is a somewhat competitive team, being a "spec" series, all teams can compete. This season you will probably see 26-30 cars show up to the track, 33 for the 500. There are quite a few part time rides. Realistically, since he's not doing ovals, 18-23 in points this season. If he did ovals, probably 13-18 in points. If he stays in indycar, He'll improve, and can possibly be a top 10 driver.

I was one of the people who loved Romain and defended him from the haters *before* the crash made him much more popular. I hope he does well in IndyCar -- I dunno much about that series but I'd love to see him win races if he has the right machinery! Never forget how close he was to winning races in the 2013 Lotus.

I honestly hope his F1 experience pays off in Indy car. We've seen a few F1 drivers make the change with varying degrees of success but I wish him all the best, and to get back on the podium! I was heart broken after the Daytona 24 when that puncture happened, they had a serious chance at the win and at least a 2nd. It would be cool to see the two of them in a sports car.
