The weekend was very frustrating for Romain.
The French driver known a lot a technical issues during the different free practice sessions.
Alas, the 20th-place starting spot proved to be moot, as the issue with the brake-by-wire system meant Grosjean was unable to start the formation lap. When the problem was deemed terminal, Grosjean’s race was over before it even began.
“There’s not much to say, honestly. I lost the brake-by-wire and we couldn’t race like that.” Romain Grosjean said. “I don’t know what happened. I feel so bad for the guys. They gave their best in very tough conditions. It’s hard on everyone. From FP1 it was always going to be hard, missing the session. We now just have to work away to get to Malaysia, get the best setup, right updates, see where everything is working, and hope for a steadier weekend. I love the race here in Singapore and I love the challenge, but this weekend was just not ours.”
