Grosjean returns to racing in VCO esports event

Grosjean returns to racing in VCO esports event

Former Haas driver Romain Grosjean will race for the first time since his heart-stopping crash at the Bahrain Grand Prix when competing in an esports event on Saturday evening.

Grosjean has been out of action since November 29, missing the final two races of his Formula 1 career after being involved in a reported 53G crash on lap one in Bahrain.

Suffering burns to both his hands, the Frenchman has unable to compete in either the real or virtual worlds for over a month.

But Grosjean will return to action on Saturday evening, announcing in an Instagram story: "Tonight I am back racing, well, esports racing at 8pm CET [7pm GMT] and I hope to see you on my twitch channel so we can chat and have fun."

Grosjean will be competing for his own R8G esports team in the VCO Pro Sim Series but the venue remains unknown, with fans able to vote between Okayama, Austin, Brands Hatch and Interlagos. The vote closes at 4:45 GMT.

The pro series 'championship race' sees real-world drivers compete in a relay-style race with a pro sim racer team-mate with a prize pot of $1,000 on the line.
