The Haas Formula One team still had something to celebrate in China.

They might not have scored any F1 World Championship points like they managed to achieve on their debut in Australia or in the second race of the season in Bahrain.

But China still offered them a first and a pretty significant milestone.

It was the first time that both drivers finished a Grand Prix.

In both Australia and Bahrain, they could only get one car to the chequered flag, in China both cars finished, but neither scored points.

Grosjean pointed the finger at the Sauber of Marcus Ericsson for a first corner collision, ruining Grosjean’s hopes of scoring points in three successive races.

‘That idiotic Ericsson hit me in Turn 1 and broke my front wing.

‘He saw nothing, he understood nothing, I just think he should open his eyes.’
Grosjean told Canal+.

Grosjean asked if he needed to retire the car towards the end of the race, but the team opted to go the full distance.

‘The balance of the car was disastrous from the start to the end, We need to analyse, to understand, there might be a physical issue.

‘We can’t have gone from where we were to where we are with no reason. Such a weekend can be positive in order to understand things.’
