Grosjean insists he's not ready for retirement just yet

Romain Grosjean might be 33 but the Haas driver has insisted he's still got business to finish in Formula 1 despite having already made plans for life after F1.

The Frenchman had a tough season at Haas as they struggled for race pace and consistency. It looked for a long time as if Grosjean's time in Formula 1 would come to an end but Haas kept him on alongside Kevin Magnussen despite their coming together in 2019.

Haas and Grosjean will hope for better fortunes in 2020. The ma himself admitted that he has thought about retirement but still feels capable in the pinnacle of motorsport.

“Yes, I have thought about it," Grosjean told F1Only when asked about retirement.

"I have a lot of plans for after Formula 1 but 33 is still young. We can see that Kimi, who is 40 years old, is still racing very well.

“So my idea, my desire for the moment is to stay in Formula 1. I want a competitive car to be able to have fun at the front. If that’s the case, I will stay in Formula 1, because I like it because I like to travel, I like challenges and because it’s my passion."
