Romain Grosjean has been discharged from hospital in Bahrain after three days of treatment for burns suffered at last weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix.

The Frenchman left the Bahrain Defence Force Hospital earlier this morning, and will continue private treatment on the burns on the back of his hands, remaining in Bahrain for the time being.

The Haas driver will miss this weekend’s Sakhir Grand Prix, with Brazilian Pietro Fittipaldi making his F1 debut in Grosjean’s place. However, the 34-year-old is keen to be back in the car for the season finale in Abu Dhabi, which will be his final race for the team.

The FIA has launched an investigation into the crash, which saw his Haas split in two before bursting into flames, with the safety cell splitting the crash barrier.
