Romain Grosjean optimistic that Haas can fight Red Bull

Romain Grosjean is confident that his team can push Red Bull during the Spanish Grand Prix. Despite Haas' struggles so far this season, they seem to look fast on the track in Barcelona and will hope to rival the top teams. 

“I’m feeling optimistic,” said Grosjean to the official F1 website. “I feel like we've got a good chance to qualify both cars in the top 10, and even maybe play with the Red Bull.

“I think we're in the mix with them. So we’ll dream big, and let's see where we go. Saying that, [Red Bull] always seem to find something in quali, but I think we've got more coming as well. Let's see. Tomorrow could be a good day.”

“From the first timed lap, the car was back to where I left it in winter testing,” said Grosjean. “It just worked, it was easy to drive, you could enjoy it, you knew what was coming. It's been very, very different from the last few races. So that's very positive, very happy with that. It shows that really, we've got a very, very strong car. Far too gentle on tyres, so here it's fine because it's warm, there's a lot of energy.”

It will be interesting to see if Haas can compete with Red Bull. If they do it will mark an incredible comeback after struggling for much of the season so far.
