This has now become clear, as Mr. Grosjean has announced that he has signed with the all new Hass Formula One Team, which was established by NASCAR famous name Gene Haas.

Former Swiss banker Romain Grosjean rose to motorsport fame through his competition in the 2007 EuroSeries championship, and won the inaugural GP2 Asia Series championship in 2008.

His break into the elite and prestigious world of Formula 1 came in 2009, which led to his first FIA GT1 world championship in 2010 before returning to Formula 1 in 2012 when he joined the Saxo Bank-sponsored Lotus Formula 1 team.

Romain Grosjean – Swiss banks, FX trading and motor sport

Since then, Romain Grosjean has bridged the relationship between technology-led Saxo Bank and the efficiency and sophistication of Formula 1, once likening the telemetry on his formula 1 car to Saxo Bank’s proprietary SaxoTraderGo platform in a meeting with Andrew Saks-McLeod in the summer of this year.

Romain Grosjean’s move to Haas Formula 1 will be effective as of the 2016 season, with Gene Haas’ experience in his operation of the Stewart-Haas NASCAR team in North America behind him.

Intelligent, modest and a fan of high technology, Romain Grosjean has become a very prominent figure in the FX business, complimenting his success in motorsport.

During his Lotus Russian GP preview, Romain Grosjean said:

“I’m headed to a new team and a new and very different challenge in 2016 – it’s true – but it’s going to be very emotional for me to leave the team that I’ve been part of for so long.”

“I’ve worked with Enstone for 10 years, we had ten podiums together and I took part in nearly 80 races… I have to say that the people at Enstone are the strongest group of people ever to keep pushing no matter what the circumstances. I had to think long and hard for the next step of my career.”
