Grosjean gutted that Magnussen was chosen for suspension upgrade

Romain Grosjean is disappointed not to have the same suspension upgrade as his teammate for his home Grand Prix later on today. Paul Ricard is a circuit where suspension is vital for speed around the tight corners. Grosjean starts the race in 16th whilst his teammate, who has a suspension upgrade, starts in 15th. 

"Kevin has a new suspension at the back which is pretty powerful here, and I'm pretty gutted to not have it for my home race," Grosjean said to GPToday"It has been a tough weekend up to now. In the morning, we were happier with the car but the pace is not very good.

"The car is very difficult to understand in terms of balance. The last lap was looking olay until Turn 9 when the rear went. I don't have any explanation, we just need to dig harder to understand and make the car better.

"It's hot and warm, there's a lot of energy going through the tyres, so we can't really blame them." 

Haas have had a poor season so far this season and have struggled in the battle of the midfield. Despite this Grosjean will want to put on a strong performance at his home Grand Prix and will try and battle for a points finish.
