Haas driver Romain Grosjean made light of an embarrassing pitlane spin at the British Grand Prix on Friday, saying he and the U.S.-owned team had laughed it off. The Frenchman smashed his car's rear wing when he lost control and spun backward into the barriers while exiting the pits in the day's first practice session, leaving debris on the track.

"Cold tyres, and when I removed the pitlane limiter, the car spun," he told reporters. "It was a bit of an awkward moment, let's say. "We laughed about it, I think that's what you should do," added Grosjean.

Haas is ninth of 10 teams after nine races and has also been in the headlines after mixed messages sent by their title sponsor Rich Energy over the continuation of their deal.
