Romain Grosjean’s Brazilian Grand Prix Ends Before It Even Starts

Mother nature can be a cruel, cruel mistress. Rain has been pouring down in Brazil today and has forced the Brazilian Grand Prix to start under the Safety Car. Even before that, mother nature claimed her first victim of the day. During the Formation Lap Romain Grosjean was heading up the hill into the final corner when he lost control of his Haas. The resulting spin sent Grosjean into the wall, ending his race before it started. Conditions are treacherous to say the least, as nearly every driver commented on the “less than ideal” conditions.

“It’s really quite dangerous out here, it’s actually quite slippery,” Lewis Hamilton said over his radio.

Grosjean was elated to qualify 7th for today’s Brazilian Grand Prix. After numerous issues involving the brakes during practice Grosjean wasn’t sure he would make it out of Q2 let alone match his highest qualifying position of the season. Unfortunately the tremendously wet conditions caught him out.
