Romain Grosjean: “It’s great to be back in the points”

Romain Grosjean secured his third points finish in four races since his move to the Haas F1 Team after avoiding the early carnage at the start of the Russian Grand Prix to finish eighth.

The Frenchman ran inside the top ten for the majority of the race, and was part of the battle for seventh that included Kevin Magnussen, Sergio Perez, Carlos Sainz Jr and Jenson Button over the closing stages of the race at the Sochi Autodrom, ultimately keeping the fresher-tyre shod Perez behind him until the chequered flag.

Grosjean admitted he was not happy with the behaviour of the car during the whole Sochi weekend, so to come out of the race with points was a bonus.

“It’s great to be back in the points, especially after a very difficult weekend where we were never very happy with the car,” said Grosjean. “It was a good first lap to avoid all the incidents, and then I kept (Sergio) Perez behind.

“There are still so many things we can improve on the car. I’m still not a hundred percent happy with the behaviour. I think for the next race it’s going to be so much better.  It’s very positive knowing that we have something that will become better.”
