The Haas team did not measure up during the first nine races of the World Cup and this week the abandonment of Rich Energy, its main sponsor, was confirmed. In this way, Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen came to the GP of Great Britain on Friday with too many pending tasks. "This is the first time in four years that we have been in this situation, but we will get ahead," admitted the French driver, the fourth oldest on the grid. However, in just 200 meters everything was twisted again for him at Silverstone.
The start of the first free session proved disastrous for Grosjean, who lost control of his VF-19 in the right-hand corner of the pit lane. An improper error for a driver with more than 10 seasons of experience in F1 and with which he destroyed the nose of his vehicle against the barrier.
Without the wing, the former teammate of Fernando Alonso in Renault had to complete a full lap at low speed. This slow advance left several remains of carbon fiber against which also ended up impacting Alexander Albon (Toro Rosso) as it passed through the Wellington straight.
Bottas confuses the garage
They were not going to end the hardships for Haas, who involuntarily starred in another of the comic moments of this 2019 course. The mechanics, prepared to receive the damaged car, watched in astonishment as Valtteri Bottas confused his garage and stopped the Mercedes there . Perhaps the black monkeys of both teams confused the second place in the World Cup.
Just two minutes later, Grosjean made another mistake in the Brooklands area that resulted in a spin and a runway exit. Finally he occupied the penultimate position of the table, only better than Robert Kubica.
Of course, everything goes the other way for the pilot with the most dropouts in the championship (four) and with only two points in the table. From Montmeló, the performance of the Haas diminished dramatically. The aerodynamic changes did not work at all, so Grosjean was forced to mount again the package with which he had started in Melbourne.
