Albon collision damage spoiled handling – Grosjean | RaceFans Round-up

In the round-up: Romain Grosjean says damage caused by a tangle with Alexander Albon explains his slip out of the points places in Hungary.

What they say

Grosjean praised the team’s decision to pit both him and team mate Kevin Magnussen for slick tyres before the race started, though it later led to a penalty for both drivers:

It was a good move from the team. I took the radio and said ‘guys it’s too dry for inters’. So we took the gamble. The first few laps were a bit leery but after that things worked really well. The pace was good.

Then I started to have graining on the front-left tyres so we didn’t protected enough. But anyway it was going OK.

Sadly, I need to see the image, but Albon had a quite late move on me in turn one, hit my front wing and damaged it. Then the car had much less performance. We tried but then everything went out of sync and I just couldn’t stay in the points.
