Romain Grosjean wants Haas to get on top of its "annoying" front wing problems after another failure during the Canadian Grand Prix.

Haas has suffered from a number of failures so far this season, with front wing concerns occurring during pre-season testing as well as in Bahrain and at the Spanish Grand Prix. After needing to change his front wing again in Montreal, Grosjean admits it is frustrating to have a recurring problem when Haas is starting to see real progress with its car.

"It’s been a lot positive, I think the first stint before the VSC was very good, I was catching the Force India and the McLaren quite easily, then the VSC came and we lost the temperature of the tyres and that’s our struggles," Grosjean said of Sunday's race. "It’s a shame because there is a lot of steps we are doing in the right direction but we don’t get the tyre to work as we like.

"And then we lost the front wing which was a bit annoying, it’s the fourth time this year, there was a touch at the beginning which probably didn’t make its life easier, but we need to sort that out and just getting the tyres to work. Once we get that the car’s going to be great.

"We are moving forward, I can say that, it hasn’t shown on results but we’re clearly doing a good job."

Asked if it was a failure which Haas has suffered before - with the previous front wing problems all having different sources - Grosjean replied: "I didn’t even check to be fair, I lost it, I shouted on the radio and I came in."

Haas uses Italian manufacturer Dallara to produce its chassis, with team principal Guenther Steiner voicing his dissatisfaction with the recurring failures after the Spanish Grand Prix.
