Romain Grosjean is excited for the twelfth round of the 2016 Formula 1 season this weekend in Germany.

The Haas F1 Team driver finished the Hungarian Grand Prix in fourteenth behind team-mate Esteban Gutierrez. Grosjean had a disappointing Grand Prix at the Hungaroring after he struggled to find the right balance with the VF16.

The German Grand Prix will be returning to the F1 calendar after it was dropped from the 2015 F1 season, after the Nurburgring and the Hockenheimring failed to complete an agreement with Bernie Ecclestone.

Grosjean has some great memories in Hockenheim after winning in Formula 3 and Formula Renault 1.6, and the Frenchman believes it’s great to return to circuits where you have good memories.

“It’s always great to visit somewhere with good memories,” said Grosjean. “I won at the circuit in Formula 3, and in Formula Renault 1.6.

“I won there in the GP2 Series until a post-race penalty dropped me to second. Every year is different though. It doesn’t matter what happened in the past. The important thing is to make it count now.”

The German Grand Prix marks the end of the first half of the season, and Grosjean believes the American-led outfit can achieve more in the second half.

“We’ve had an amazing first half of the season,” added Grosjean. “I’m sure we can do more in the second half. For that, we really need to keep working, keep our focus and take some rest whenever we can.”
