Romain Grosjean secured his highest finish of the Formula 1 season as he crossed the line in sixth place at the Austrian Grand Prix.
The Haas driver celebrated a strong race to record his fifth points-scoring finish of the campaign for the Banbury-based team.
The Frenchman made a strong start and ran as high as fourth before giving up positions to Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton.
He eventually brought his car home in sixth place – the last car on the lead lap – to pick up eight points and record Haas’s best ever finish in Austria.
Grosjean, who admitted before the race that he was surprised by Haas’ upturn in form in Austria, praised “a really strong race”.
He said: “We pushed hard all the way and that’s the racing we like. It was a great race and a great job by all the guys.
“I was happy with the car all weekend long. There are a few things we need to improve, but today we were the best of the rest.
“We showed that when we get everything to work on the car we’re strong.”
There was less joy for Banbury team-mate Kevin Magnussen though, who was forced to the garage with a hydraulic issue on lap 30.
The Dane was 11th and poised to join Grosjean in the points before he had to retire. Magnussen said: “It’s pretty tough when these things happen. You’re in a good position, the car’s working really well, and it was our strongest weekend with the most potential for a good result for both cars.
“I could easily have been up there with Romain and we could’ve had a perfect result for the team. It’s just been really poor luck this weekend.”
