The Haas F1 team have improved a lot from their debut season and both drivers are always in the thick of the action. In the qualifying head to head, Grosjean leads Danish teammate Kevin Magnussen by 7-4. As a bonus, the Frenchman’s highest qualifying position was 6th in Australia. In terms of race results, Grosjean has finished ahead of Magnussen 4 times while Kevin has finished ahead of Romain twice. Other few times, at least one car or both cars have failed to reach the chequered flag.
In Australia, Jolyon Palmer was joined by German driver Nico Hulkenberg at Renault. Right off the bat, Hulkenberg dominated the proceedings while Palmer struggled. In the intra-team qualifying battle, Hulkenberg has had a clean sweep where he leads Palmer with a score of 11-0. Hulkenberg also has had the measure of his British teammate in terms of race results as he has finished ahead in most of the races. It was only in 2 of the last 3 races that Palmer finished ahead of the German. At Silverstone, Palmer was unlucky to be struck by hydraulic failure before the race start.
