Grosjean and Haas F1 celebrates ‘American dream debut’

Romain Grosjean says that it was unbelievable fighting with skilled rivals and this is a American dream debut, after finishing fifth in the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The first American F1 team in the sport for 30 years have enjoyed a dream debut and have already earned 18 points with Grosjean, who made one step lift from his performance in Melbourne at the Bahrain GP.

The Frenchman is now fifth overall in the world championship, ahead even of Ferrari’s championship contender Sebastian Vettel.

Grosjean successively made several clean overtakes in Bahrain GP and, after finishing the race, he was again gushing over team radio.

“This is the American dream debut,” he said. “This is unbelievable. What a job from all of you. Guys, I love you. Beautiful.”

“I’m what, fifth?” he told France’s RMC. “I think I’ve never been that high in the drivers’ world championship. It’s incredible and a bit crazy.

“I hope that from the outside it looks as beautiful as it does on the inside,” Grosjean enthused.

“We have to be realistic,” he told Sky F1. “There has been a lot going on in the first two races and we can improve a lot of things. We’ve two unbelievable races and we have to keep feet on the ground.

“There is more work to do but this is crazy, this is nice! It was unbelievable fighting with Williams, Red Bull and Toro Rosso, and not having issues.”

Former Force India driver, Sky F1 pundit and Williams reserve driver Paul di Resta meanwhile believes Grosjean will have his eye on Kimi Raikkonen’s seat in the near future.

“I think Romain’s looking at the big picture,” he said. “He wants himself in a red car, doesn’t he.”
