Grosjean crashed into the steel barrier on the first lap of the November 29 race, causing his car to split in half and burst into flames.

Despite being trapped inside the burning vehicle for 28 seconds and later saying he had accepted he was going to die,the Frenchman escaped mostly unscathed apart from burns to both of his hands for which he is still undergoing treatment in Switzerland.

"50% back," Grosjean said on Instagram Thursday after having the bandages removed from his right hand. They currently remain on his left.

"Bloody hell, makes me super happy to have my right hand free from dressings. Loads of creaming all day long but it feels so good to see it in such good shape. Waiting for my left hand to recover now."
