Grosjean: Still no contract signed for 2013
21 November 2012 – Although he is highly optimistic of staying with Lotus for the 2013 F1 season, Romain Grosjean admits that he is yet to put pen to paper. The Franco-Swiss driver rejoined the sport this season, having won the GP2 championship in controlled fashion in 2011.
Although his season will perhaps be best remembered for incidents and his ban from the Monza race after causing a multiple collision at Spa, Grosjean has demonstrated impressive form while racing alongside 2007 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen.
Finishing on the podium twice, he had achieved 15 out of 18 Q3 appearances and ten points finishes.
“It reassures me, but there is still no sign so we’ll just wait until the end of the season,” he tells French radio station RCM. “Brazil has a circuit I love and which suits my driving style quite well, so I can’t wait to get out there with a good car this weekend.”
The 26-year-old, born in Geneva, now targets a strong end to the campaign. He is yet to finish in the top six since his podium finish of the Hungarian Grand Prix, nine races ago.
