Grosjean signs Haas F1 contract for 2016

French driver Romain Grosjean has signed to race for F1 novice Haas F1 for 2016 season, Autosport revealed.

Haas F1 have scheduled a news conference for a driver announcement next Tuesday (Wednesday AEST) at their Kannapolis, North Carolina, headquarters.

Grosjean currently drives for Lotus that have severe financial problems and are in ongoing takeover talks. The financial problems meant the team’s freight arrived late for this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix and their hospitality unit was not in operation on Friday at the Suzuka circuit.

The 29-year-old Grosjean, who made his F1 debut in 2009, says his future is decided.

“It should be sooner rather than later. In my mind, it’s done. I’m happy with it. You will know soon. You can always change your mind but I think I am pretty pleased with my choice.” Grosjean told Reuters

Haas, whose founder and chairman Gene Haas is co-owner of the successful Stewart-Haas Nascar team, appear to have ruled out naming an American driver for their debut season.

Team principal Guenther Steiner told the official formula1.com website earlier in September, before Californian Alexander Rossi was drafted in by Marussia for five of the last seven races: “There is nobody out there at the moment.”

Haas F1’s second driver, all indicators are pointing to Ferrari test and reserve driver Esteban Gutierrez.

    I wonder who’s going to Lotus, maybe Stevens, Rossi or Vergne, but I think we should wait for the second Haas’ driver.

    Let’s hope they go for Vergne instead of Gutierrez, an all french line-up would be pretty cool.
