The Sepang International Circuit has compensated for Romain Grosjean's high-speed crash at the venue last season, Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has confirmed.

Grosjean was involved in a heavy collision with the barriers after a loose drain pipe destroyed the right rear suspension on his car at Turn 13. The Frenchman was sent spinning out of control before coming to a stop in the barriers beyond the gravel trap.

Steiner stated that there were no complications during the process:  “We settled, the insurance were very good to deal with and we are happy,” he said. “The insurance was very professional, they stood up for their responsibility.”

Despite it being almost a year since the incident occurred, Steiner says that he is not surprised by the outcome: “It’s [been] a year now roughly, it’s a long time this case. I think it’s the first [time] something like this happened.

“It got sorted, they were good to deal with. There was so many parties involved as well. These things take always time. An insurance claim is never quick. We were not looking for anything else. They agreed it wasn’t our felt, there was something that went wrong and that’s why they have insurance.”
