Romain Grosjean excited to move forward into 2020 with Haas

Romain Grosjean was perhaps expected to be leaving Haas and F1 at the end of this season, but the news this morning confirmed that the Frenchman would be sticking around for at least another year at the American team. Grosjean has said that he is looking forward to continuing his Haas journey as he enter his fifth year with the team.

Grosjean has endured a tough season, scoring points only three times, scoring just eight points compared to teammate Kevin Magnussen's 18. 

There had been plenty of rumours surrounding Nico Hulkenberg jumping into Grosjean's seat, but Haas obviously feel that the 33-year old has done enough to earn another year at the team.

Grosjean said: “I’ve always stated that it was my desire to remain with Haas F1 Team and keep building on the team’s accomplishments.

“Having been here since the very beginning and seen the work both Gene Haas and Guenther Steiner put into the team to make it competitive, I’m naturally very happy to continue to be a part of that.

"To finish fifth in the constructors’ championship last season in only the team’s third year of competing was something very special. We’ve had our challenges this season, but we’ll use both the experience of last year and this year to move forward into 2020.

"I’m looking forward to working with Kevin (Magnussen) and the whole team and continuing our journey together.”
