In an earlier report, Haas F1 Racing Team has warned rivals that there is even more performance to come from its Formula One racing car over the next few years. And this is exactly what Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean wants to say.
The French driver believes that there’s still much more to come from his Haas F1 team, in terms of both car speed and aggressive tyre strategies. The French driver, who made a sixth place finish in Australian Grand Prix and fifth in Bahrain Grand Prix, insists that there is more speed to come from the Haas chassis even without receiving any updates.
“I think there’s still huge potential that we haven’t unlocked in the car, which is great,” Grosjean said in statement, via the Motorsport.
Grosjean has surprised his team and the entire F1 world with the great performances from the two opening races in Australia and Bahrain. The results of these races have put Grosjean in the unexpected position in level with the world title challengers.
The Frenchman sits fifth in the drivers’ championship well ahead of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and level on points with another Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen. Grosjean said that he has faith in the upgrades and strategies Haas is bringing to the Chinese Grand Prix to step up the performance of the VF-16.
The Frenchman believes that the recent Bahrain performance, where he finished the fifth place, showed the true potential of the Haas car. The new American racing team has gained some buzz this season after taking points in its recent grand prix.
Despite a huge head start this year, Grosjean knows that key to his Haas team’s potential will be its ability to develop.
“Now it’s going to be our challenge to keep up with the big boys. We’ve had a good start and have a good baseline. Of course, as a driver, I want more performance. I think there are a few more parts coming in China and then a few more after that,” Romain Grosjean said in statement, via the Fox Sports.
“I’m very much looking forward to trying the first updates to see if they’re working as they should. We’re not a hundred percent with the car yet, so there are still a few things we can do without adding the updates.”
