The car behind hamilton was about a carlength back and off to the left.
These are screencaps from just after the first impact, which was very slight (maybe 5cm of actual rubber contact)
Theres easily a meter of road there that Hamilton couldve ducked into (and I think thats what Grosjean was counting on)
