Singapore GP

Disappointing weekend from Grosjean

It was supposed to be a weekend of thrills and spills, but it was more spins and retirement for Romain Grosjean who didn’t even make it out for the start of the race for Haas.

This came on the back of a tough weekend at Haas, with Grosjean loosing time on Friday in practice, and then spinning in the second part of qualifying which kept his teammate out of Q1 as well. It didn’t stop there for the Frenchman, with Sunday not going to plan either, not getting onto the grid with a brake by wire problem which saw him ruled out of the race completely.

Despite the poor performance this weekend, he still believes in the team, “There’s not much to say, honestly. I lost the brake-by-wire and we couldn’t race like that.

“I don’t know what happened. I feel so bad for the guys. They gave their best in very tough conditions. It’s hard on everyone.

“From FP1 it was always going to be hard, missing the session. We now just have to work away to get to Malaysia, get the best setup, right updates, see where everything is working, and hope for a steadier weekend. I love the race here in Singapore and I love the challenge, but this weekend was just not ours.”
