Romain Grosjean’s proposed Formula 1 test with Mercedes has been postponed due to travel restrictions.

Mercedes offered Grosjean a farewell Formula 1 test in the wake of his fiery accident at last November’s Bahrain Grand Prix.

That action was Grosjean’s last for Haas, with the Frenchman ruled out of the final two events of 2020, having already confirmed he would exit Formula 1.

Grosjean, who has since competed in IndyCar with Dale Coyne Racing, carried out a seat fit in Mercedes’ 2019 title-winning W10 earlier this year.

Mercedes announced plans for Grosjean to demonstrate the car at the French Grand Prix ahead of a full day of test action on June 29.

The rescheduling of France’s Formula 1 round created a clash with Grosjean’s IndyCar commitments but the test day was still set to go ahead.

However Mercedes announced on Wednesday that this can no longer take place due to travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in place between the United States and France.

Mercedes stressed that it remains committed to giving Grosjean a chance in its Formula 1 car and is “working to reschedule the test later this summer.”
