Grosjean doubles up as F1’s Driver of the Day in Bahrain

Two races, two points-scoring finishes, and two post-race interviews where he’s needed to pinch himself or slap himself to confirm he’s not dreaming.

Naturally then, Romain Grosjean is also two-for-two with the fans, having won Formula 1’s “Driver of the Day” for a second straight race after his great drive to fifth in Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix for Haas F1 Team.

Grosjean and the Haas team parlayed a three-stop strategy to perfection with three runs on Pirelli’s supersoft compound, and a finish on soft, after qualifying in ninth.

He won the Driver of the Day this week with no voting issues, as had been the case at Australia when a disclaimer noted that only a single vote per account could be cast. Rio Haryanto had been ahead prior to the disclaimer being added.

For good measure, Grosjean has also won our own F1 on NBC Sports “driver of the day” poll for a second straight race as well.

And to continue with the Grosjean train, he’s also the latest online driving instructor for, which means you can ask him questions.
