Grosjean reflects on season so far: 'Very good car, some bad luck'

Ahead of his home Grand Prix coming up this weekend in France, Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean took time to reflect on the seven races of this season so far, saying it's been up and down with a good car and bad luck.

Grosjean has had a mixed season, doing well in qualifying but only harvesting two points in seven races for the American team. However, three DNF's in the first four races for the Frenchman have also highlighted the other aspect of his season; bad luck.

Speaking ahead of his home race at Le Castellet in France this weekend, the 33-year-old spoke about his season.

“I think it’s been an interesting year – not the one we were hoping for at the beginning," the Frenchman analysed.

"We’ve got a very good car. We’ve had some very good races, but we’ve also had some bad luck and a car that’s been very complicated to use sometimes.

"So, our performance has been a bit up and down, which is not what we were looking for after last year where we were very consistent. We’re working really hard
trying to understand that and to get the best from the VF-19."

Last year was the comeback of the French Grand Prix after ten years of absence, but the race ended badly for Grosjean, finishing 11th after a promising start.

"Last year was a very good experience. I really enjoyed my time at Le Castellet and the support from the fans.

"I’m looking forward to this year again. I’m hoping for a better result, as last year was not the race I wanted.

"So, let’s hope it’s a good weekend, a good race, make sure we don’t spend too much energy outside the track, but on the other hand, I want to share a lot with the fans."
