The pilot Haas Romain Grosjean commented on the innovation of the FIA, which complicate the starting procedure for racers.
In 2017, the start procedure for pilots will become more
When Romain asked, if he fails to adapt to the new start procedure, he replied: “so far I have not honed. Sometimes good, sometimes bad.
Interestingly, the start will depend entirely on the clutch. If you squeeze the clutch at the right moment, then the start will be successful. If not, then either wheel will spin or you will lose grip. It’s a complicated situation.
I understand to get a good grip on the start, the pilot will need luck. The problem is that you never know what will be the adhesion to the asphalt”.
Today Grosjean drove 96 laps in the VF-17, finishing in tenth place in the final Protocol.

“We have a problem with understeer. You need to understand why this is so. I’m testing different settings to see what would be useful in Melbourne – continued the Frenchman. For example, we want to understand whether changing the geometry of the rear wing on the rigidity of the front part of the machine. Such things we check on my tests.”
When Romain asked whether Haas to reach the points zone at the Grand Prix of Australia, he replied: “It would be great. We managed it last year. Then we thought that’s even possible, but achieved the result. Let’s see what happens this time.”
