I waarched a short video clip of his day and was surprised to see how bad the burns on his left hand looked, months after his accident. He has mentioned that he does not like taking his gloves on and off, just leaves the left one on, now I can see why.

He looked pretty relaxed and seems like he’s enjoying himself.

Are we speaking of Romain Grosjean? Did he change the spelling of his name?

No, bad spelling abounds here. It's "Merica, you know.

He's doing exactly what he should be doing, pushing to find the limit of the cars performance envelope

I have raced there many times. There is more elevation change going thru turn one than it appears in those photos. Not unheard of to do some agricultural racing at that spot.

In practice, you are practicing to qualify which is completely different from how you drive in traffic or in a race.

Seriously
. I was there for the practices and even the Indy Lights race. No one crashed in turn one. I don't remember them even getting sideways.
There were some off road adventures in turn 2-3

Was glad to see him ok and retire from F1, disappointed I have to see him in Indycar now. just my opinion, would like to see him sail off into the sunset.

Looks like he will be doing just that as Gene Haas has sent him packing, allegedly because he does not want to face a widow or children.

May find a seat elsewhere or in another series, as many other F1 exes do.

I believe Grosjean ( spelling police take note of correction ) that he has a full time Indy car ride with Dale Coyne . But it is for street and road courses only no ovals . It sounds like Gene Haas was considering some sort of help/sponsorship but then changed his mind . He probably got the final bill on the wrecked Bahrain car and said I'm out 😁
