GPDA assisting with F1 return 'the best we can'

Romain Grosjean has said the Grand Prix Drivers' Association are keen to play and active role in getting Formula 1 back racing.

Former driver Alex Wurz sits as the chairman of the GPDA while Grosjean and Sebastian Vettel serve as directors, and the Haas driver says that there a plenty of conversations going on between drivers over a restart.

"We have got a WhatsApp group and it has been very active, I must say," Grosjean told Sky F1. "A lot of discussions on different subjects.

"We had a call with Formula 1, Chase Carey and Ross [Brawn]. I just couldn't make the call, but I know Alex and Sebastian were on it and then I got the feedback.

"We are trying to be as much as we can involved, trying to help the best we can because to help the teams we need to go racing earlier than later.

"Obviously not doing anything costs money for nothing and if we can go racing then we know what's happening."

While the risk of infection is dropping in many countries, particularly in Europe, there are still questions about whether it is safe to resume racing.

"Everyone is doing his best," continued Grosjean. "Obviously, it's very difficult to know what the situation is going to be like.

"Taking a lot of measures and trying to make sure that everything is great. But maybe in July, the world will be in a much better place and actually we can ease things up a little bit. As I said, the earlier we can go racing the better."
