The accident of Romain Grosjean has significantly more viewers at the Bahrain Grand Prix Locked TV screens. Because the Grand Prix had to be interrupted for more than 80 minutes after the Haas driver crashed, the odds for the race are split in two this time.

It is noticeable that both RTL and ORF the odds for the race after the restart are significantly higher than at the first start, when it had to be stopped after a few meters.

3.83 million fans were in front of the television on RTL for the first time at 3:10 p.m., 4.13 million fans were counted after the restart. According to the private broadcaster, more than five million viewers tuned in at the peak.

Nonetheless, it was noticeable that interest after Lewis Hamilton's established title has waned. Because in 2019 there were still 4.82 million fans in Bahrain - and that with warmer temperatures in April. At that time, Bahrain was also the second race of the season and saw the two Ferraris of Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel on the front row.

The market share in the second part of the race was 17.8 percent, in the target group at least 16.4 percent were picked up - also significantly less than the 24.4 percent from the previous year.

Pay TV broadcaster Sky was able to look forward to 570,000 viewers, which has not been achieved in Austria and Hungary since the first triple header. There was a strong 5.7 percent market share in the target group.

 Formula 1 star Romain Grosjean: Formula 1 drivers are aware of the enormous danger they expose themselves to in their job. But their families also have to live with fear. Marion Grosjean (38) knows very well what can happen in racing - the journalist once worked as a Formula 1 reporter. The wife of the French-Swiss racing driver Romain Grosjean (34) speaks on Instagram about her husband's shocking accident, which has been moving the world since Sunday (November 29).

After the race, many other fellow drivers also took to social media to highlight the dangers of the sport and wish Grosjean a speedy recovery. “Solid performance out there for us tonight, but what matters most is that Romain walked away from that accident ,” added Williams’ George Russell.

The interest in Austria was similar: 578,000 spectators for the first part of the race (32 percent market share) already meant a good rate, which, however, increased to 672,000 fans (34 percent) during the interruption. The second race even counted 690,000 fans - only at the Styria GP, another 1,000 fans watched.

On the other hand, the market share of 28 percent was significantly weaker than this season. However, this has to do with the later start time of the race, which generally has a negative effect on the market share, as has been observed in recent years.

The next Grand Prix in Sachir will take place later, namely at 6:10 pm. This means that a higher number of viewers can be assumed, but a lower market share.
