In the morning session, Grosjean went into a turn and got stuck in the gravel. After mechanics found that the reversal did not provoke any damage to the chassis, Romain returned to the track, but soon due to sensor failure he stopped on track at around 9-10 turns.
In the second half of the day mechanics discovered on the machine leak water, which also deprived Haas of the set of important mileage.
“Pre-season tests it is impossible to 100% prepare for the first Grand Prix of the season in Australia. We had only eight test days, one of which was held on a wet track, said Grosjean. Yes, great teams are able to prepare for Melbourne, but we may not feel so confident. This is the charm of F1.
We have some ideas on how we can improve the car. I hope that those updates that we will bring to Australia, will work”.
