Romain Grosjean: Something went wrong with the car at the Italian GP

Haas had another difficult weekend at the Italian Grand Prix. Romain Grosjean finished the race 16th after a collision and a number of difficulties with his car. The Frenchman will hope that things improve in time for Singapore. 

"It was very complicated," Grosjean said after the race. "I was hit from behind into turn one and it picked up the anti-stall. I had to pull the clutch, release the clutch, and by the time I had done all that I was driving through the polystyrene blocks and was dead last through the first corner.

"I tried to push to come back, then I had a spin at Ascari. I came into the pits and asked the team to remove a fair bit of aero balance, as the car was very much on the nose. We did it, but the car was still overbalanced.

"We pitted again and removed one percent of aero balance, and the car was still overbalanced. Definitely, something went wrong with the car today. We need to analyze everything, the balance we had today was definitely not what we had during the rest of the weekend."

It was a weekend to forget for Haas and Grosjean will need some good performances before the season ends if he is to hold onto his Formula 1 seat for 2020.
