Will Andretti exit rejuvenate Grosjean's IndyCar career?

Romain Grosjean has largely healed from the burns that seared the events of Nov. 29, 2020 into his flesh. Tightness is felt when he clenches his left hand, the remnants of scars and a skin graft. They're permanent reminders of the day he became "The Phoenix."

As the three-year anniversary of his life-altering crash at the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix approaches, Grosjean has powered through the physical damage and reconciled the emotional trauma from the fire that nearly brought his end.

Now 37, he has reimagined himself as an IndyCar driver after more than a decade spent with teams of varying competence in Formula One.
