Romain Grosjean: It’s a tough feeling not being able to do anything”

Romain Grosjean had a difficult race at the Belgian Grand Prix. At one point he was as high as 6th but ended up finishing the race in 13th. The Haas driver is disappointed with the result and blames the performance on the set up of the car.   

“We had a great start, the car was performing very well at the beginning of the race," Grosjean said. "I was really happy with the car pulling out a gap. Then we put the medium on and to my surprise, the car was even better. So, I was hoping it was going to be a really good afternoon.

"Then we went behind the Renault of Ricciardo. He was fighting as hard as he could, and we just had no chance to pass him. We obviously had too much drag and not enough top speed. It’s not a choice or an option we had just to get the tires to work, but it’s so hard.

"I was happy with my driving style and the car, you’re constantly fighting, but it’s so hard to take having been in P6 to then go to P13. It’s a tough feeling not being able to do anything.”

Grosjean will hope that he can get a points finish in Monza and prove to Haas that he deserves a seat for next season.
