‘American way’ can be good for Formula 1 – Grosjean

Romain Grosjean has welcomed F1’s new American owners, saying the ‘American way’ can be good for the sport.

It has been announced that US media tycoon John Malone’s Liberty Media, and new executive chairman Chase Carey, are taking over from CVC as the sport’s majority owners.

Frenchman Grosjean is now well versed in the ‘American way’ of going racing in F1, having switched from Lotus to be the lead driver of the new American team Haas in 2016.

“America knows how to put on a show if you take a look at the Super Bowl or Nascar,” he is quoted by the local Straits Times newspaper ahead of the Singapore grand prix.

“It’s such a big country and a big market. In the Austin grand prix last year, people were enthusiastic and they loved the sport.

“It’d even be nice to have a second grand prix there. I’d love to have a race on the west coast, maybe somewhere around Los Angeles. If we get more races in the US, they’ll probably love F1 more,” Grosjean added.
