Romain Grosjean says he will do everything in his power to prove his critics wrong this season, with the Frenchman eager to eradicate the accident-prone reputation he picked up last season. The 26-year-old, whose low point of 2012 came in the form of a one-race ban at Monza, is adamant that much better things are to come.
"I think everyone is waiting to see if I’m able to be consistent, which is where I was lacking a little bit last year," said Grosjean, who attended the E21 launch on Monday. "I know it and I’ll do everything I can to prove to people that I’m able to achieve this goal."
With improved consistency in mind, Grosjean is targeting a much larger haul of points at the end of the 2013 season, having been overshadowed by Finnish team-mate Kimi Räikkönen last year.
"I can clearly say I want to score a lot of points for the team - everybody knows that - but I think it would be wrong for me to say I want to finish in a particular position in the championship," Grosjean added.
"I really want to jump out of the car as many times as possible thinking that I did a good job. Knowing that everything I could do, I did, and feeling proud of my race or session. I hope to feel that way as many times as possible this year."
In 2012, Grosjean wound up eighth in the overall standings with 96 points to his name, while team-mate Räikkönen claimed third place with a total of 207 points.
