Idiotic Ericsson hit me in Turn 1 – Grosjean

Frustrated Romain Grosjean has slammed Marcus Ericsson for their Turn 1 accident during the Chinese Grand Prix.

Grosjean’s conductive point finish came to an end on Sunday following his front wing was damaged as a result of the clash with Ericsson at the start of the race.

Also the setup issues blighted his all weekend long, leaving him to ail to a lowly 19th place finish from 14th, on his 30th birthday.

“It was the worst possible birthday,” Grosjean told Canal+ after the race.

“That idiotic Ericsson hit me in Turn 1 and broke my front wing. He saw nothing, he understood nothing, I just think he should open his eyes.”

This is first time in the Haas F1 history, the duo Grosjean and Gutierrez finished a race, also the first race finish out-side the top ten.

“The balance of the car was disastrous from the start to the end,” added Grosjean, who asked if he should retire the car over the radio.

“We need to analyse, to understand, there might be a physical issue. We can’t have gone from where we were to where we are with no reason. Such a weekend can be positive in order to understand things.”
