As the Frenchman confirms that he will not be able to compete in the season finale, Toto Wolff has said he is willing to give him a private outing.
“If we are allowed to do this, and nobody within his universe of teams that he raced would provide him with such an opportunity, we would do it,” said the Austrian.
Grosjean got to sit in his Haas on Saturday, subsequently posting a picture on social media.
“Not my usual racing gloves on,” he wrote. “Sitting back in my Haas felt really good. I was so happy.”
This morning, hours ahead of the penultimate race of the season, Haas announced that despite his best efforts Grosjean would not race in next weekend’s season finale and will be replaced, once again, by Pietro Fittipaldi.
