Born in Switzerland, Romain races under the French flag for American team Haas. Having departed the reborn Renault team after four years to enjoy a new adventure. After an erratic spell earlier in his career, he is now established in Formula 1®.
He finished 2017 as Haas’ highest championship point scorer, and 2018 presents a chance for him to lead the team forward.
Grosjean made his debut late in 2009 with Renault, starting seven races. This was the extent of his career until a return in 2012, when he picked up a reputation as accident-prone following a sequence of first-lap collisions. This time, in the rebranded Lotus team, he stayed four years and proved he had race-winning potential, but without a car to do the job.
He has made no secret of his ambition to drive one day for Ferrari – and Haas’s links with the Scuderia, who supply their engines, may help him realise that chance in the future.
