If Haas sign Robert Kubica, the two drivers will be against giving up their FP1s

Haas drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen both say they do not want to stop racing in FP1 for Robert Kubica if he does sign for the American outfit at the end of the season.

Kubica has announced that he will leave Williams at the end of the 2019 season and he has been rumoured to have held talks with Haas over a development role at the side for the 2020 season.

However, the Polish driver wants an F1 role with on-track action and doesn't want to be just involved in the simulation work. Grosjean pointed out that top Formula 1 drivers should not give up on-track time at the weekend.

"No," Grosjean replied to Autosport when asked if he would be happy to give up his space for FP1 sessions next season. "I don't know (how to overcome the problem). I haven't heard anything (about Kubica signing).

"Giving up Friday morning is never ideal. It depends where you want to fight and what are your missions. We have never seen Ferrari, Red Bull, or Mercedes giving up Fridays, because they want to win.

"Every session is important. If it's got to be, it will be it, but in terms of performance, it's not ideal."
