Nico Hulkenberg’s Abu Dhabi GP came to a premature end, as his car smashed into the barriers after Hulkeberg locked up and his rear tyre made contact with Grosjean, with Hulkenberg’s car flipping and crashing into the barriers.
The Halo was in use there, as the car turned on its head, and also caught fire.
However, due to the Halo, Grosjean wasn’t able to move and hence had to wait for the marshals to man handle the car and turn it around before he could get out of the car.
The crash was a spectacular one, with the car flying in the air and flipping before coming to stop.
Grosjean was very concerned on his radio, as he asked his engineer if Hulkenberg was okay.
And the Renault radio came up, the fans were made aware of how Hulkenberg was doing inside the car.
On the radio, Hulkeberg was asking his team to get him out as soon as possible, as his car had caught fire.
“I’m hanging here like a cow. Get me out. There’s fire.” Hulkenberg said
"Get me out. There's fire".

Crikey. Hulkenberg rolls. Lands upside down. "I'm hanging here like a cow. Get me out. There's fire." He clashed with Grosjean. Fire's out now. Safety car. https://t.co/lb5iNPBe0w

🚦Ben: "Lights out and away we go!"🚦
It's a perfect start for Hamilton, who scampers off into a commanding lead 💪
But there's utter carnage further back as Hulkenberg is flipped into a ferocious barrel-roll by Grosjean 💥
