MUST-SEE: Grosjean loses front wing in bizarre pit-exit spin

Share

The British Grand Prix weeeknd got off to a strange start for Haas as Romain Grosjean lost his front wing in a strange pit-exit spin during first practice.

"[It was] a bit embarrassing," said the Frenchman. "I turned the pit-limiter button off, the tyres were a bit cold and grip was low, next thing I knew I was backwards. It didn’t feel so good..."

Sadly for Grosjean, his day didn't get much better, with a hydraulic leak limiting his running in FP2 - not what you need when you're in the midst of the run Haas are currently enjoying (or not enjoying to be more precise).

But in spite of everything, the 33-year-old was in an optimistic frame of mind after Day 1 at Silverstone, having made changes to his car.

"There’s definitely a better feeling in it, we’re just looking to develop it now, understand it, and move forward.”
