Shockingly, Grosjean was uninjured.

?I didn?t see anything. I was just on the racing line and then suddenly I had a big hit on my rear right,? Grosjean said in remarks reported by Fox Sports.?Next thing I know the tire wasn?t there any more and I was spinning and heading for the wall.”

Officials cancelled the rest of practice as they inspected the track.
