"I almost won three races in Formula 1, and it never really happened for outside reasons. But it's quite funny.
"I met some people that know of me since the Lotus days in Formula 1 and say they've been watching it all.
"And I watch a lot of younger people, younger audience, they have only seen Drive to Survive on Netflix. So they talk about Guenther Steiner and ask how he is in real life, and of course the accident."
Origin of the phoenix
Grosjean has used a phoenix as a symbol of his return to racing and explaining why, he added: "I think the accident, it's one of those things that kind of marked the world.
"It was pretty much on every TV you could switch on. It was very impressive.
"That’s the way I see that: 'Phoenix.' It's the rise from something bad.
"It's not necessarily related to the fire, but it's how you can rise from something that could destroy you but use it in a positive way and rise from there."
