At least something positive is happening for Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean.

After an up and down start to the season, most recently a crash at the start of the Russian Grand Prix, Grosjean was appointed as a director of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association this past week.

The Swiss-born Frenchman replaces the retired former GPDA director Jenson Button.

His appointment comes despite the fact that while GPDA president Alex Wurz is a big proponent of cockpit protection in F1, Grosjean has never supported moves to have systems like Halo or ‘Shield’ implemented.

“We race drivers don’t always hold the same opinion, but as a group we are united in wanting the best for our sport,” Grosjean said in a statement.

The other GPDA director is Sebastian Vettel.
