Haas may not have met its own performance targets for 2019, but nobody could possibly accuse the team of making rash decisions about the hiring and firing of drivers.
Romain Grosjean has driven in every Grand Prix in which the team has taken part, and will line up for his fifth season with Haas this weekend.
The French/Swiss driver remains one of pitlane’s most puzzling, combining displays of podium-potential speed with performances that can only be described as clumsy.
It was clearly a frustrating time for Grosjean last year, particularly from mid-season onwards, but the new car appears to offer hope that there is a step to be made.
That will need to be the case.
The teams around Haas made positive moves in the off-season, so Grosjean will need to bring his A-game to repay the faith that the team has shown in him.
