Grosjean Interested In Competing In WEC Alongside Kevin Magnussen

Speaking to the “In The Pink” podcast, Haas driver Romain Grosjean had plenty of compliments for his team-mate.

As Haas drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen approach their final three races with the American racing outfit, there has been much speculation about where they will go next in motorsport.

While Grosjean has hinted at talks with IndyCar teams in recent weeks, he has now told the “In the Pink” podcast that participating in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) is most appealing to him.

“I’m looking at endurance racing. If you’re good with your teammate and you’re having a great time with them and the whole team, it can be a very good experience.

“Actually, doing Le Mans 24 Hours virtually, with three team-mates, made me feel really special and made me really want to do it in real life,” the Frenchman said.

As for which team-mate Grosjean thinks he may be compatible with, he had one idea in particular, stating:

“I think that Kevin [Magnussen] has been one of the best teammates I’ve ever had. He’s much faster than what people think, he’s a great racer […] I wouldn’t mind racing in endurance racing with Kevin as a teammate. I think we’d find a good compromise and we’d have fun.”

Romain acknowledged that there had previously been speculation about animosity between the team-mates in the past, but said:

“We are very different, but we actually get on very well together […] People thought we didn’t like each other, but actually, we do like each other. We travel sometimes together.”
