Former Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean has confirmed he will contest the 2021 IndyCar season with Coyne.
Grosjean hasn’t raced since his shocking crash on the opening lap of the Bahrain Grand Prix in November. His Haas car burst into flames in the impact, causing severe burns to his hands, which prevented him from competing in the final two races of the F1 season.
He will make his IndyCar debut in the season-opening Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park on April 18th. Grosjean will take part in the 13 rounds of the 17-race series which take part on road and street courses, but will not tackle the four races on ovals.
The Coyne team scored their most recent IndyCar victory with another ex-F1 driver, Sebastien Bourdais, at the Grand Prix of St Petersburg in 2018. They fielded Santino Ferrucci and Alex Palou last year, the latter scoring their best result with third place at Road America.
