Grosjean wins Driver of the Day award again

Romain Grosjean has won the Driver of the Day award for the second time in a row after being voted by the fans as the best racer of the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The Haas driver had won the award - introduced in Formula 1 this year - in the Australian Grand Prix, where he finished in sixth position in the American squad's maiden outing.

Grosjean did even better in the second round of the season in Bahrain, finishing in fifth place to continue Haas's sensational rookie campaign.

That performance has secured him his second successive Driver of the Day award.

The Frenchman admitted he never expected Haas to enjoy so much success so early.

"I said in testing that we could score points early in the season," he said.

"I was thinking that we would be 10th and 14th, then sometimes if you get something then you can finish on the high but not scoring so many points in the beginning.

"I don't think anyone would have imagined that."
