Grosjean sets sights on fourth spot
Romain Grosjean feels his Haas team can target fourth in the constructors' standings in 2019 after finishing fifth last year.
Grosjean accepts Haas are unlikely to be able to close the gap on last season's top three of Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull but he feels fourth is a realistic goal.
Haas finished just 29 points behind Renault in fourth in 2018, and Grosjean hopes they can go one better in the coming campaign.
He told Autosport: "I think our goal will be to try and get fourth, behind the top three. So we'll have to step up our game. What we've learned is that we changed league, from the back of the midfield to the front of the midfield.
"There are things that you can do, mistakes that you could do, but now you cannot, because everything counts, you need to be more precise, you need to be more accurate.
"But it's been a great year in terms of learning all of that, so the team is now ready to keep improving, keep going and if the baseline of the car is as good as it was [in 2018], there is no reason that we shouldn't be able to fight for fourth."
