Haas F1 Team‘s Romain Grosjean has described Friday’s Practice running as the “worst Fridays” since the formation of the team, ahead of this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix.

Haas endured a difficult day with Grosjean suffering oversteer issues which saw him losing the rear of the car at Turn nine, causing damage to his car and halted the Frenchman’s running.  Grosjean managed to continue running but could only managed sixteenth fastest with twenty laps completed in Free Practice one.

The afternoon session saw more trouble for Grosjean reporting in complains over understeer and oversteer during his running, and he struggled to find a consistent pace throughout his runs.  Two red flags appeared thanks to crashes for Pascal Wehrlein and Jolyon Palmer, with the incidents interrupting Grosjean’s running, meaning he could only finish eighteenth fastest.

With a total of 45 laps completed from Grosjean today, the Frenchman commented after that the team struggled to find the balance around the Hungaroring.

“A pretty tough day for the whole team. We’ve been struggling with the balance all day. I think we can quote it as one of our worst Fridays since we started Haas F1 Team.” claims Grosjean.

“We just need to put everything together and try to understand what the problems are. Obviously, we’ve had some issues today.

“We have to try to get better for tomorrow. It’s not over yet, but we’ve certainly not made our lives easy.”
