Haas like DAMS - Romain Grosjean

Romain Grosjean has likened the atmosphere at Haas F1 Team to that of DAMS where he won the GP2 title in 2011.

The former Renault driver has come across as critical of the American team throughout 2016, but he insists that it is just his passion coming across the wrong way.

"I’m just in a place where I’m driving, trying to push the team hard," Grosjean told Autosport.

“Sometimes I’m not using the right words, it’s nothing personal, it’s all in perspective and going in a good direction.

"You don’t ask yourself is the team going to keep me on, does the team have faith in me, or where are we going," he added. "Earlier in my career with DAMS I had that feeling of doing something quite big for the team and I had the reward of respect from all the guys."

“"I feel the same here, I crashed the car in Brazil [before the start of the race] and I felt so bad, but everyone gave me a hug and said 'It doesn’t matter, we’ve got the next one, it’s fine’."

“It could have been ‘What was that?’ but it’s not like that here."
