Keith Collantine wrote a new post, Grosjean prefers WEC and Formula E to IndyCar: ‘Ovals may scare me’

In the round-up: Romain Grosjean rules out a possible switch to IndyCar if he cannot stay in Formula 1 next year.

What they say

Haas are known to be considering alternative drivers for the 2021 F1 season:

Most likely I’ll stay in Europe. In America obviously IndyCar is a beautiful championship, but I’m not really tempted by ovals, and they even may scare me so I don’t really want to do ovals.

So for America, there’s a few endurance championships. But I think in a future, Hypercars in Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Endurance Championship can be nice. Formula E is definitely an option. There are some good drivers up there and some good teams.

In Formula 1, obviously everyone can do the maths and see what the seats available are.
