Only "podiums and wins” would tempt me back to F1 – Grosjean

Only "podiums and wins” would tempt me back to F1 – Grosjean

Romain Grosjean has refused to rule out a return to F1 in the future but said he would only come back if he had a chance of running at the front.

Haas announced ahead of the Portuguese Grand Prix that it would run a completely new driver line-up next year, and Grosjean and team-mate Kevin Magnussen have both admitted their days in F1 are all-but over.

Grosjean, who has scored 10 podiums in a 178-race career, feels there is still work left to be done but insisted he would not want to keep battling at the back in future.

Asked about his future, Grosjean said: “The Formula One door? Never say never but really I think the main target for me in the future is to be somewhere I can fight for podiums and wins because that is something I am missing too much nowadays.”

Both Grosjean and Magnussen have talked fondly of IndyCar and confirmed have they have held talks with teams involved in the American series.

When pushed for an update on a potential IndyCar drive Grosjean added: “No news at the minute on my side. Hopefully it will come sooner than later."

Reports this week suggested Magnussen may be close to securing a drive in the American IMSA sportscar championship with Chip Ganassi's revived team.

The Dane had previously expressed interest in driving for the team in IndyCar but, with the seats already taken, it is possible Magnussen could use sportscars to build a relationship with the team.

Magnussen, however, remained silent on the topic, saying: “I still haven’t committed to anything so there’s not too much to say on that point. Hopefully soon I can announce what I am doing.”
