Grosjean will have to wait a bit longer for Mercedes test

Romain Grosjean's upcoming test with Mercedes has hit a snag after Mercedes announced they're working to reschedule the test to later this summer.

Mercedes have announced that Romain Grosjean's planned test with the team has been postponed due to travel restrictions between the United States and France.

The test was announced back in May, with the Frenchman set to return to the cockpit of an F1 car for the first time since his dramatic accident at the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix. The plan was for Grosjean to drive Lewis Hamilton's championship-winning W10 around the Circuit Paul Ricard at the end of the month, however Mercedes have announced it will have to be rescheduled.

"We’re disappointed to announce that Romain Grosjean's Mercedes test has been postponed because of travel restrictions and quarantine requirements.

"We're committed to giving Romain his chance in a Mercedes F1 car and we're working to reschedule the test later this summer."

The original plan was for the rest to occur on the same weekend as the French Grand Prix, however the outing was cancelled after the event was brought forward and closed with Grosjean's IndyCar commitments. The date of Grosjean's test was then changed to June 29, though this latest announcement from Mercedes has changed those plans.
