The Haas team did not measure up during the first nine World Cup races and this week the abandonment of Rich Energy, its main sponsor, was confirmed. In this way, Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen go to the British Grand Prix this Friday with too many pending tasks. "This is the first time in four years that we have been in this situation, but we will get ahead," admits the French driver, the fourth most veteran of the grid. However, in just 200 meters everything was twisted again for him at Silverstone.

The start of the first free session proved disastrous for Grosjean, who lost control of his VF-19 in the right-hand corner of the pit lane. An improper error for a driver with more than 10 seasons of experience in F1 and with which he destroyed the nose of his vehicle against the barrier.

Without the alern, Fernando Alonso's former partner in Renault had to complete a full lap at low speed. This slow advance left several remains of carbon fiber against which also end up impacting Alexander Albon (Toro Rosso) as it passes through the Wellington straight.

Bottas confuses the garage

They were not going to end the hardships for Haas, who involuntarily starred in another of the comic moments of this 2019 course. The mechanics, prepared to receive the damaged car, watched in amazement as Valtteri Bottas confused his garage and stopped the Mercedes there . Perhaps the black monkeys of both teams confused the second place in the World Cup.

Just two minutes later, Grosjean made another mistake in the Brooklands area which resulted in a spin and a runway exit. Finally I occupy the penltimate position of the table, only better than Robert Kubica.

Of course, everything goes in reverse for the pilot with the most abandonments of the championship (four) and with only two points in the table. From Montmel, the performance of the Haas decreased dramatically. The aerodynamic changes did not work at all, so Grosjean was forced to mount again the package with which he had started in Melbourne.
