The Haas F1 Team have completed their first free practice sessions after becoming an official Formula 1 team in the season-opener of the 2016 Formula 1 season in Melbourne.

Romain Grosjean completed his first practice for the American-led team, completing a total of fourteen laps around Albert Park. In FP1, Grosjean went twentieth quickest with a time of 1m43.443s. For FP2, the Frenchman completed a time of 1m43.731s to go thirteenth quickest.

After tricky weather conditions during FP1, the weather looks to brighten for FP3 and Grosjean is looking forward to this so they can try to catch up to their rivals.

“We had tricky weather for our first official practice sessions,” said Grosjean. “It was a very good effort from all the guys to get out there on time at the beginning of P1.

“It was a very strong moment as well for Gene [Haas] and Guenther [Steiner], who have been working on the project for a long time. We became an official Formula One team today. The weather was tricky. We did a few laps on inters, but we just missed the opportunity to run the slicks.

“It looks like we could have a dry P3, so we can try to catch up and go from there tomorrow. I’m very proud of everyone and very proud to officially enter our name into the classification. I’m looking forward to a drier day tomorrow.”
