Haas racer Romain Grosjean commented on the clash with Jolyon Palmer in the second turn Sochi Autodrom, which resulted immediately both.
“I had a great start and braking was inside near Palmer. I don’t know why he turned me. He hit my car, lost control and struck again – quoted by Grogan, the press service Haas. – The car received serious damage, and in this race for me was completed.
I was hoping to assess the work done during the weekend, and drive the race distance, to understand what can be done before the next step. Most likely, we would not have scored points, but it is always useful to evaluate the results of the work.”
Partner Frenchman Kevin Magnussen finished 13th.
“Better as soon as possible to forget about racing this weekend, but we will give you a lesson,’ said the Dane. Three previous races were good for us, but this time for certain reasons we were not as competitive. Any situation you need to draw conclusions, but I don’t think the Grand Prix is significant and so will the rest of the season.
With such a dense fight in the middle group any error throws you far back. The result is not perfect, but now I’ll focus on the next stage and the latter part of the season.”
