Romain Grosjean is the first retirement from the Malaysian Grand Prix, having spun off-track at Turn 6 on the third lap. The Lotus driver, who was about to pit for Wet tyres, initially lost position as he spun with Michael Schumacher on the opening tour.
“The start was fantastic, that was a good point!” Grosjean told Sky Sports.
“I was there, I was careful and unfortunately Schumacher comes and hits me at Turn 4, so I spun. The rain came too hard and Kimi (Räikkönen) was pitting so I had to stay out with Inters...
"I couldn’t drive it. There was no visibility, it was really difficult, we couldn’t even go flat-out on the straights. I’m very disappointed because I think we could have had a good race.”
The result marks a second retirement within seven days for Grosjean, who in Australia last week came together with the Williams of Pastor Maldonado.
