  • 'It is important that Grosjean gets back in the car quickly'

Daniel Ricciardo said he felt vindicated for his comments about Formula One's replays of Romain Grosjean's crash when the Frenchman's wife, Marion, personally thanked him for what he said.

The Renault driver was deeply unhappy last weekend that screens were filled with repeat showings of Grosjean's fiery accident - just as other drivers were preparing to get back in their cars.

Asked at the time if a driver should be given the option of pulling of a race on the spot after witnessing the terrifying wreck, Verstappen said that if he was an F1 team boss, he would "kick out of his seat" anyone who would not be willing to race. Obviously, after the race I was still, let's say, not only a bit heated but I had to dive back to my own race, so I didn't feel it was the right time. Ricciardo said there were no certainties over the Haas driver's condition when the replays in question were being shown.

"I think people misunderstood what I meant", he said. "I felt like once they showed it once and then we'd obviously seen him jump out and get into the medical auto, I felt like that was all we really needed to see".

"I felt like once they showed it once and then we'd obviously seen him jump out and get into the medical auto, I felt like that was all we really needed to see".

"And trying to get the engineer's attention or the mechanics - everyone was a little bit spaced out or rattled from it all, which is completely understandable".

"There is nothing wrong with that if you feel uncomfortable to race but we are part of a team and they rely on us to do our job which is drive the vehicle". You get those clips like "did you see that crash at Indy 500 or something" and it was never really appealing. Some people love the debris everywhere, but I feel like I'm not 10 years old anymore. "You know, you kind of grow out of that".

"I'm no doctor but from my understanding there could be further complications maybe later that evening that we don't know about", added Ricciardo.
