Andretti Autosport driver Romain Grosjean has been eliminated from the 2022 Indianapolis 500. He was involved in an accident on Turn 2 on Lap 105 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana.

“The car spun and I don’t know why,” Grosjean said in his post-evaluation interview. “There was no warning, so I’m looking forward to seeing the data, but I just wasn’t expecting any problem.”
