Romain Grosjean Regrets Not Checking IndyCar Calendar Sooner

Grosjean previously said he is reluctant of moving to IndyCar due to the dangers of oval racing.

After losing his seat at Haas last month, Romain Grosjean has been trying to figure out his next move as he looks to continue racing beyond 2020.

Grosjean has said he has been considering a move to the IndyCar Championship, as he knows he has virtually no chance of landing an F1 seat next season.

This is not the first time that the Haas driver has expressed interest in a move to the American racing series, though he previously admitted that he is concerned about the dangers of oval racing.

However, he has since realised that ovals aren’t a major feature of the IndyCar calendar:

“I kind of regret that I didn’t check the calendar earlier. There are only two ovals, one short track. But it is something I would consider.”

Grosjean also revealed that he has discussed IndyCar racing with Marcus Ericsson, who moved to the American racing series after losing his seat at Alfa Romeo.

“I spoke with Marcus Ericsson when he went there and he really liked the different styles. The drivers have a big role to play and the car was fun and everyone has got a chance to win the race,” he said.

“I have had some contact and some good ones,” Grosjean replied when asked if he has been in touch with IndyCar teams to negotiate a contract.
