Romain Grosjean will make his short return to Formula 1 over the weekend of the French Grand Prix this year after Mercedes boss Toto Wolff fulfilled a promise to allow the driver to use one of the team's older cars.

Grosjean's F1 career ended following his horror accident at the Bahrain Grand Prix in 2020 which caused severe injuries and ruled him out of what were to be his last two races in an F1 car.

However, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff at the time said Grosjean could test in the team's past cars as a way to give him a proper send off from the sport, and he has come through on the promise with the upcoming test in Sir Lewis Hamilton's 2019 title-winning W10.

The French drive has already visited Mercedes HQ in Brackley for a seat fitting to ensure the W10 will be ready for the run out in June.
