Romain Grosjean stepped out of the world of F1 and took his talents to IndyCar racing. The Swiss-French driver suffered a horrific crash at the 2020 Bahrain GP. The crash marked the end of Grosjean’s Formula 1 career as he did not renew with Haas for another year.

Grosjean did not stay away from racing for too long. The former F1 driver crossed the border and joined IndyCar racing to practice his trade yet again. However, Grosjean is not the only F1 driver to cross the divide and join IndyCar. Marcus Ericsson, the former Sauber driver, is also plying his trade as an IndyCar driver from 2019.

As we all know, drivers always feud over incidents on the track in F1 all the time. Now Grosjean and Ericsson showcase that all motor sporting competitions are the same following their contact during the Nashville race. In the race with 11 laps to go in the 80-lap race, Grosjean made contact with Ericsson, which ruined his race.
However, with five laps to go, Grosjean received similar treatment from Josef Newgarden. The contact from Newgarden resulted in Grosjean retiring from the race. Not happy with the contact and how his race ended, Grosjean was quick to share his feelings on Twitter.

What Grosjean would not have expected is the reply from Marcus Ericsson on his Tweet. “What goes around comes back around,” a simple yet punchy reply from Ericsson has caught everyone’s attention.
The simple five-worded reply to Grosjean’s tweet was enough to add fuel to the fire. Ericsson’s reply clearly was to remind Grosjean of their crash earlier in the race.
What goes around comes around

This was Grosjean’s tweet and Ericsson’s reply.
"If you're not aggressive back, then you get run over."

Newgarden had an interesting take on the incident, but as we know, Grosjean did not agree. However, it was Ericsson’s reply that caught all the attention.
Romain Grosjean being mad aboutgetting dumped right after he dumps Marcus Ericsson will never not be funny.

So apparently I’ve been rooting for two guys who don’t like each other. Huh, kind of a weird feeling.
