Grosjean confirmed for Haas F1 seat
French driver Romain Grosjean will race for Ferrari-powered Haas F1 when they debut next season, the new U.S.-owned Formula One team announced on Tuesday.
Haas founder and chairman Gene Haas, who is also co-owner of the successful Stewart-Haas NASCAR team, joined Grosjean in a news conference at the team’s Kannapolis headquarters in North Carolina.
The team are the first U.S.-owned entrants in Formula One since 1986.
Grosjean is currently racing for Lotus, who are in the process of being taken over by Renault.
