When you were choosing Haas this year, did you think you’d taken a big risk in your career?
George Oancea, Romania
My life is a risk. Twenty-one weekends a year I take a risk and they can be heavy. We know Formula 1 can be dangerous. Changing team is a risk, just as changing job in normal life. It was calculated. I knew what I was leaving and I knew, more or less, what I was leaving for, and I’m just very happy to be here. F1R: Did the situation at Lotus make it easier for you to move? RG: It was just knowing, thinking about what Renault or Lotus or whatever would be like in 2016, and what it would be like being in a new team. And I think I am in a better position now than I would have been in a yellow car.
