Roman Grosjean is one of three who have failed to earn points this season. The Haas racer assures that such results are due to the fact that the team not only does not bring new items, but also produces an insufficient amount of spare parts …
Roman Grosjean: “After the accident in Mugello, the car was completely destroyed, we had to replace a lot. But on Friday in Sochi it turned out that some of them did not work as they should, and we had to change them too.
The team does not upgrade the car – the more rivals add, the more we roll back. There is nothing left but to try to compensate for the lag with the correct settings.
Moreover, this year we are producing fewer spare parts than usual. As a result, when an accident occurs, the best parts are destroyed, and we have to put the old ones on the car – “second best”, “third best” and so on. This may explain the instability of the machine.
This was the situation with Kevin at Silverstone, when he lost a lot to me. In Sochi on Friday I was already in the role of the laggard, but we did a great job with the settings. Now we are driving the same car that we had during the pre-season tests in Barcelona. “
