Grosjean quite confident of keeping his F1 seat

Haas driver Romain Grosjean is a man under pressure and he has been talking about his future in motorsport, suggesting Formula E could be an option, but ruling out IndyCar.

Grosjean has been a regular on the grid since he returned with Lotus in 2012, moving to Haas for 2016, and he has been with the American team ever since.

However, a tough season last year followed by a disappointing start to 2019 means that the Frenchman is in real danger of not having a seat for next season.

Speaking in the paddock for the Belgian Grand Prix, Grosjean said: "Formula E could be one, yes. It's a nice championship, and obviously very, very different from Formula 1, but quite competitive and with some good constructors coming in which is always exciting, and maybe one or two others.

"Not IndyCar. I'm too scared of ovals."

Grosjean admitted that he had not had the season he wanted to have, adding: "This year the season is not great, the results are not what they are. But I am happy with what I’ve been doing, I am happy with what I’ve achieved.

"I’ve had a terrible year. Six DNFs and none of them are my fault. Reliability hasn’t been on my side, the car performance hasn’t been on my side either.

"Whenever we were going to have good races we didn’t get it to the finish line. It’s not a good season in that aspect.

"But again I think I’m happy with my performance I’m very happy with my feedback. I’m quite confident I’ll be on the grid next year."
