Romain Grosjean: “Lewis Hamilton would have no chance” / Formula 1

Romain Grosjean has finished the Formula 1 chapter, but not his racing career: he will drive IndyCar races in 2021. The man from Geneva takes the view: the car is too decisive in the premier class.

Romain Grosjean achieved his greatest triumph without stepping onto a podium: He survived the terrible fire accident on November 29, 2020. The 34-year-old Geneva made it clear: “I know that my Formula 1 career is over. But I will continue to race. ” On February 3rd, he announced: He will drive IndyCar races in 2021.

The 179-time GP participant Grosjean is of the opinion that he was beaten under value in Formula 1. In fact, he is one of those drivers who have won races and titles in all categories, but not in the premier class. Nico Hülkenberg is one of these pilots.

Grosjean speaks from the soul of many drivers and numerous fans when he says to his colleagues from Autosprint: “If you want to win in Formula 1, then you need an excellent car. The twenty GP drivers all drive at the highest level. Okay, there may be small differences, but I consider them to be minimal. “

“If drivers like Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen or George Russell had the best material, they would make life difficult for Lewis Hamilton. Or the other way round: If you were to put Hamilton in a Haas racer, it would have no chance. “

“The perfect example to show how important the racing car is: the deployment of George Russell at the Sakhir GP as a replacement for Lewis Hamilton.”

As a reminder: The English driver, who usually hits the rear with the Williams, almost put the Mercedes on pole position, and only bad luck cost him the victory (pit stop mistake by Mercedes, then tire damage).

Romain Grosjean is happy that his long-time colleague Sergio Pérez has a chance at Red Bull Racing-Honda: “I am very happy for him. And I am convinced that he will show great performances in a top car. He drove for McLaren a few years ago, but today he has a completely different level of experience. I firmly believe that he will not miss this opportunity. “
