Having joined for 2016, Grosjean started out by scoring Haas F1’s first points with a sixth-place finish at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix. He followed up with a fifth the next time out in Bahrain.
Magnussen landed at Haas in 2017 and achieved 11 top 10 finishes out of 21 races with his VF-18 two years ago. His best so far has been a pair of fifth-place finishes in Bahrain and Austria.
Haas sparked eyeballs when it revealed that it would be offloading both Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen at the end of 2020.
-Former Haas drivers Magnussen and Grosjean inform rookie replacements what to expect from the 2021 car.
“I think they are going to”- Former Haas duo explain to their successors who are going to debut in F1, what to expect from their cars in 2021.
While Magnussen has signed to race in IMSA sports car series, Grosjean seems to take a sabbatical from the motorsport racing after the horrific accident in Bahrain.
“I don’t think they are going to find a difficult car to drive,” said the Dane. “As we have seen, these cars are excellent, and many times I’ve driven the car and thought ‘this has got to be competitive’ because the feeling has been pretty good, but it just isn’t, and we’re slow because we lack a bit of everything, quite a bit of everything.
“That’s really what makes us uncompetitive, but not really because the car is challenging to drive. I think they are going to find it very fast and enjoyable to drive.”
“It’s not too hard to drive”- Grosjean.
The Frenchmen added onto Magnussen’s thoughts and told that its more about how good the driver is the tyre management department, and with experiences they might age well with the car
“I think generally Formula 1 is difficult for a rookie, but the car is, it’s a bit understeer, so in that aspect, it’s not too hard to drive. I guess it’s always going to be a key to getting the tyre to work and with the 2021 tyres, we don’t know how it is going to go,” said Grosjean.
“It’ll be faster than what they’re used to.”
