After the first four rounds of the 2018, Romain Grosjean is one of only two drivers that hasn't managed to finish inside the points. After a difficult start in Australia, the Haas driver failed to score points in Bahrain and China, as he finished 13th and 17th respectively. 

In the last round, in Azerbaijan, the Frenchman lost the control of his car while he was running sixth behind a safety car. After he hit the wall, he was forced to retire from the Baku race and he is still in the search for his first points in 2018. Grosjean currently sits 19th in the driver's championship standings, with no points scored so far.

"The car's been good and we just need good racing, and if that's the case we should have plenty of points at the end of the year." Grosjean said."Four races, we should've been in the points four times, but in the end we've been there zero times."he added.

"It's not been an easy start. I think it's seventeen races to go including [the season-finale in] Abu Dhabi and if all of our tough luck is gone and we should be smiling a bit." Grosjean ended.
