Alexander Rossi has confirmed that, he has had talks with US based Gene Haas about driving for Haas Formula team when it joins the F1 grid in 2016 season.

Haas, who is trying to field the first American-based Formula One team since 1986, would like to fill one of his two open seats with an American driver.

“I am thrilled for Haas,” Rossi told Crash.net.

“His passion and commitment to enter F1 and bring Americans closer to the sport deserves serious respect. America is growing every year and the amount of support I receive personally is phenomenal.”

“Americans love to have an athlete to get behind and I think having a team in the sport, particularly with someone as well known and successful as Gene would be fantastic.”

“We’ve obviously spoken with Haas and the final step is to have an American driver in F1 that fans can support. If the opportunity comes my way and timing is right, I know I’ll be prepared and could do a good job for them.” Rossi added.

Earlier of this season team founder Gene Haas told press, what he expecting to recruit “I think we would like to have an experienced Formula One driver, someone who’s familiar with the current engine package rules – they’ve changed quite a bit even from last year”.

“Then going forward we would certainly like to have a young American driver, that would be an ideal situation,”
