When you were choos­ing Haas this year, did you think you’d taken a big risk in your ca­reer?

F1 Racing - - YOU ASK THE QUESTIONS -

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.
