IndyCar: bad luck for Grosjean
After giving up mid-race during Indy 500 following contact with the wall, Romain Grosjean (Andretti) did it again in the streets of Detroit.
The Franco-Swiss driver is currently going through a difficult time in IndyCar after missing out on his first Indy 500s.
Even if he had climbed into the top 10 on the grid at Indianapolis, Grosjean had hardly shone in the race by finishing in the wall.
It was another crash that relegated his Dallara-Honda (in a green livery, pictured above) to twelfth in the ‘Fast 12’ in qualifying for the Detroit Grand Prix last weekend before leading a race anonymous to fail in 17th place in one lap.
“However, we had worked very well during free practice on Friday and again on Saturday morning, says Roman. The tires let us down. I don’t know why, we couldn’t continue at the same pace… »
« The first contact against the wall damaged the left rear suspension, but I don’t know why this contact happened, he remarks. I haven’t tried anything different from the previous flying lap, so I don’t understand. »
Let’s hope that the Andretti team puts their finger on the right settings, as was the case for Alexander Rossi, an excellent second in the same second as the winner in Detroit, so that Grosjean can get back on track this weekend on the beautiful Road circuit. America.
The Detroit Grand Prix can be relive this evening at 8:45 p.m. on VOO Sport World for Belgian viewers.
