Grosjean sick and tired of spinning

Romain Grosjean became a bit unsettled during free practice yesterday, ranting over the Haas team radio about his car's propensity to turn itself around.

The Frenchman spun three times, twice at Turn 6 and once at Turn 1, but the Haas driver wasn't the only one to get caught out by the slippery track conditions.

"What the hell is going on? I'm starting to be a bit fed up," quipped over the radio an exasperated Grosjean after the third mishap.

"Yes, [I was fed up] because I spun three times without understanding it," he said.

"Basically it was the brake-by-wire not responding as it should. When you're going on new tyres and you're spinning, of course you're going 'what the hell is that?' because I'm fed up of spinning - I'm not here to spin.

"But it was three laps out of 40, the rest went pretty well. The Tarmac is pretty old as well, doesn't have the grip.

"We saw a lot of spins, but for mine it was particular things that we'll sort."

Many drivers pointed to Pirelli's tyres as the main reason for the multiple spins.

"It feels very much the same as the previous years, it's just faster," said Lewis Hamilton.

"But actually the tyres are worse, the car is sliding a lot more.

"While we have more grip [from aero], the tyres are much harder, maybe too stiff. You see people spinning all over the place today because the grip is quite poor."
