Faults still be with Haas driver Romain Grosjean. The French man forced to skip the second British Grand Prix practice session following massive crash in morning practice, and its resulted to switch to a new chassis for his Haas F1 car.

Grosjean lost control at turn one at Silverstone circuit, when he activated DRS on the curve and pushing hard, sliding over the gravel trap and smashed into the tyre wall with the front-left wing of his Haas F1.

“The car is destroyed, very very sorry. I think it was the bump, I missed the button,” Grosjean said over the radio just following the crash.

The FIA regulations states that, any driver taking a new chassis will not permit run again on the same day.

“We need to change the chassis,” Haas team principal Gunther Steiner confirmed. “He will not be out in FP2. Simple as that.”

After a strong race in Austria, Haas endured an eventful first practice session at Silverstone as Grosjean’s team-mate Kevin Magnussen was summoned to see FIA stewards after allegedly making a dangerous manoeuvre when passing Fernando Alonso.

“We are now back to a normal day in the office,” kidding Steiner. “One car needing to change chassis and the other one seeing the stewards. We are just getting normal now again.”

“I hope we can get it back together tomorrow and have a good race on Sunday, more like Austria.”
