Romain Grosjean targeting points

Romain Grosjean believes that he can take points away from the USA Grand Prix as his team experiences their first home race.

Haas F1 come into the weekend with good spirits, and will be hoping to leave the same way. Romain Grosjean, who is participating in his 100th Grand Prix, believes they can.

"Having my 100th grand prix here, home race for the team, is just a great thing," Grosjean said on Thursday.

"We arrived Monday in Charlotte and then went to see the factory in North Carolina and went to see the NASCAR factory and did some media."

"Of course a lot of employees at the North Carolina factory are going to come here, which is great, as they don’t get to see us very often – the base is more in Europe – so that’s going to be good."

Last time out in Japan, Haas had a tremendous qualifying effort with both cars making it into Q3 and one car starting from seventh, their highest ever qualifying position.

Grosjean is hoping that the good fortunes can carry over to this weekend.

"Well, if I’m not in Q3 but I score points that would be good," Grosjean admitted.

"In Japan we had a great qualifying and we made some good progress on the car, which is good. We had a new front wing that we could eventually run, which worked well."

"It’s very hard for us every time we go to a track, because we don’t have any data from the past and we don’t know where to start with the set-up, so we have to guess a little bit and it takes more time than other people to find everything correct."

"But we definitely will try to qualify well and then scoring points in the race would be good, because we haven’t done that for a long time!"
