Romain Grosjean: “I’m very proud of my guys”

1 Mins read

Romain Grosjean was understandably happy with the result of qualifying in Bahrain after the Frenchman placed his Haas F1 Team car inside the top ten, only just missing out on Q3.

After securing the team’s first points on their debut in Australia two weeks ago, Grosjean’s qualifying performance ensured their first trip into Q2, with his ninth place grid slot further up the grid than they were expecting heading into the event.

Grosjean now has one eye on securing points for the second race in a row, although he knows the race on Sunday at the Sakhir International Circuit will be long and difficult, with important tyre choice decisions to be made.

“Our position is higher than our expectations, so that’s good,” revealed Grosjean. “Everyone worked brilliantly.

“I was talking with Guenther (Steiner, team principal) before qualifying and he said this session would be a big test for us. Every time we go out on track, we’re learning more. I’m very proud of my guys.

“Tomorrow is a long race – a difficult race with the tyre choices – but I think it’s possible to have a good time. We’re hoping for more points, but it’s a very different track from Australia. I’m looking forward to going racing.”
