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.
Grosjean was dejected following the crash. Despite the wreck, he was able to walk away under his own power.
“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.”
