Romain Grosjean: Confident of long-term future

Romain Grosjean is still confident he has a long-term future in Formula 1 and has more “business to do” with Haas.

Grosjean has been one of the biggest underachievers of the 2018 season after only collecting his first points finish of the campaign after nine races.

As a result, Grosjean’s place at a competitive Haas is under threat, but he still has a positive outlook on what may lay ahead for him over the next couple of years.

“I’m not too unhappy with my career so far and I still believe I can be in Formula One for quite a bit of time,” Grosjean reflected.

“I don’t feel old and who knows what is happening in 2021. No one wants to sign contracts beyond the end of 2020 right now.

“Let’s see what Formula One becomes like and if there is a chance or whatever. Right now I am in a good team.

“I am very proud of what we have been doing over the past two and half years and I think we have got some more business to do together.”

Grosjean has started on the road to redemption following a run of three points finishes in his last four races before the summer break.

But he is very much aware that the points finishes need to keep coming thick and fast in order to give himself the best possible chance of continuing with the American outfit.

“It hasn’t been a great half of the season, but it is not all about what happened in those races,” Grosjean said via ESPN.

“Obviously I want to be able to go back to being able to score points reasonably and not having any trouble, which I know I can.

“If the car is where it is today it is not by miracle, so it’s a wider picture.”

Haas currently have the option to extend the contracts of both Kevin Magnussen and Grosjean for a further year.
