Grosjean: If Ferrari call I will say yes

Date published: June 9 2016

Romain Grosjean admits he would head to Maranello if Ferrari showed any interest in signing him.

The Frenchman joined Haas at the beginning of this year with speculation claiming it was a move to align himself with the American team’s technical partner, Ferrari.

And although Grosjean is adamant his priority right now is Haas, he says he would say ‘yes’ if Ferrari called.

“It’s not me who decides,” he told Gazetta dello Sport. “I’d like to of course.

“But I don’t think about it and focus instead on doing well and bringing Haas to a competitive level.

“But if a call comes from Maranello, I’d be happy to say ‘yes’.

Asked what Ferrari means to him, he replied: “Something big. We are talking about the most important team.

“When I was 18-19 years old, I spoke with Jean Alesi and he told me: ‘Before I was just a Formula One driver, then I became a Ferrari driver’.

“Wearing the red suit, driving that car, it’s unique.”

Should Grosjean join Ferrari it would be as Kimi Raikkonen’s replacement as the Finn is out of contract at the end of this season while Sebastian Vettel has a long-term deal.
