As Haas ponders a potential refresh of its driver line-up for 2021, the writing is appearing on the wall for Grosjean who has started to explore alternatives outside of F1 to continue his career in motorsport.

Among other potential options, the Frenchman has expressed an interest in Peugeot’s endeavor into the Le Mans Hypercar category, the incoming top class of the FIA World Endurance Championship that will be put on its rails in 2022.

“We will get in touch sometime, as this is a project I’m hugely interested in for the future,” Grosjean said.

“A French constructor at one of the greatest races in the world, for sure it’s a nice project.


“I hope with Hypercars, as many constructors as possible will come back and the endurance championship will enter another golden era.

“Toyota are doing a great job, but let’s be real: nowadays, watching the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a car that’s fighting its little sister, or big sister, is not very exciting.

“Peugeot is coming, there’s Toyota and, I hope, other constructors. It will once again be a thrilling race whose result you never know, even five minutes from the end.”

Grosjean admitted his odds of remaining on the F1 grid in the event of a departure from Haas aren’t great.

“I think the maths are quite easy, there aren’t many seats left,” Grosjean said.

“So in that aspect, there is a little bit less speculation, and also looking at other options as well outside of F1, to see what could be really tempting.

“I guess we will know soon enough for everyone, so luckily we don’t have to answer that question any more in the future.”
