Grosjean more confident for Canada
3 June 2014 – Romain Grosjean says he will go into the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend with more confidence as Lotus looks to recover further off the back of a difficult start to the 2014 Formula 1 season.
Despite a 'nightmare' start in Monaco two weeks ago, Grosjean came through and again scored points, finishing in eighth place for the second race in a row.
"I'm happy we made it to eighth at Monaco and we go to Canada [now] with more confidence," he stated.
Looking specifically to Montreal, he added that while they will definitely be hoping for more power from Renault and also realise the car is not quick enough in low speed corners, it is fine in the high speed stuff.
"They [high speed corners] are not a concern," he continued. "The aerodynamics are stable and the power unit management is getting better so now we are more focussed on the suspension side."
"Last year we had a very good car in that aspect, so we will compare the E22 with the E21 and possibly revert to some previous settings to make it better at low speed. I believe our downforce is pretty good so it is mechanical grip we are after. Even at Monaco we improved the car, even if it did not look like it on the timesheets," added the Frenchman.
