Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The Haas team has been left puz­zled by sep­a­rate me­chan­i­cal fail­ures on both Ro­main Gros­jean and Este­ban Gu­tier­rez’s car in Malaysia. Gros­jean was on for a points fin­ish be­fore a brake disc ex­ploded on his car, while Gu­tier­rez lost a front wheel af­ter a pit­stop. “We have sent ev­ery­thing back to Italy to in­ves­ti­gate what hap­pened be­cause we are not clear. They got the wheel on, and it was tight, but then it some­how came loose,” said Haas team chief Gunter Steiner. “It wasn’t com­pletely on when he torqued it, but then the nut shouldn’t go on.”
