Strug­gles ev­i­dent

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ro­main Gros­jean says he fore­saw the strug­gles of Re­nault, and that it di­rectly con­trib­uted to his de­ci­sion to jump ship to Haas. Re­nault re­turned as a full man­u­fac­turer team this sea­son, but has strug­gled due to a late start. Gros­jean, who wanted to stay in a com­pet­i­tive car to keep his chances of land­ing a seat with Fer­rari alive, said: “The idea of com­ing to Haas was not with an eye on Fer­rari. I felt Re­nault would have the year they are hav­ing. On the other hand there was an US team com­ing to F1. I thought if I can be there and make it suc­cess­ful, it’s go­ing to be huge in the US.”
