“Thank you to everyone that’s been sending me really lovely messages. I really appreciate it.
“I’m very grateful for the Halo style system. Because of the Halo system I was able to get out without there being an issue with the fire because the fire was inside the car as well and I could see it.
“So without having the Halo there I would have been trapped and I’m very lucky and very grateful for the Halo style system to be put in place and for the F1 Academy to have it.”
For short period Bianca was underneath Chloe Grant’s car, and she also hailed the HALO system as having saved her life.
Chloe managed to drive in the 3rd session even though she was nursing a bandaged arm.
