The former F1 driver decided to take his leave from the sport after his horrific accident in Bahrain last season. The Phoenix will find himself in the middle of the circus once again.

In his time away from the sport, Grosjean has found his place in IndyCar. Having recently made his debut in the oval, the Frenchman looks to embark on a new chapter with the sport. After a memorable and slightly messy debut, he said, “I’m happy with this first oval race, I’m a little dizzy right now but tomorrow should be better.”

His race engineer, Oliver Boisson, believes he has what it takes to make it in the series. He praised Grosjean, saying“When you saw the passes he did inside and outside, and how he got stronger on the restarts and was really going for it and having a good time, yeah, I’m definitely not worried about him racing any ovals. There’s no question he can do it.”

Closer to his roots, his former boss is proud of him, too. Guenther Steiner worked with Grosjean for four years at Haas and is undoubtedly proud of the driver today. “It’s good that he can come back and do what he’s doing. Because he is clearly surprising people because he’s not in one of the big three teams, which makes it already difficult, but he’s always showing that he’s there when there is something good to be taken.”
