Romain Grosjean says that he is not 100 percent happy because not 100 percent has been right. And also he evaluating his first half performance and mark 7.5 out of 10.
In Bahrain and Canada he was took podium finish, French man presently sits seventh in the Drivers’ Championship on 61 points.
“Well I’m a perfectionist in that I always want better, so I’m not 100 percent happy because not 100 percent has been right,” he told the team’s website when asked to mark his first half of the season.
“But then, this is my first full season in Formula 1 and I’m talking about maybe getting my first win off the back of two podiums already, and what should have been three without a mechanical issue.
“I can also look at good races such as Silverstone where there was fantastic overtaking and fighting with the World Champion. So I would say 7.5 out of 10.”
Grosjean is also confident the Hockenheim circuit will suit Lotus’ E20 and little bit unhappy news for French man that he gets a five-place grid penalty as his team needs to change his E20’s gearbox.
“I think the chances of overtaking will be quite high. We need to see the DRS zone and so on, but looking at the layout it’s good for that and all the races here are usually interesting,” he said.
“I’m sure we can have a good race and deliver a strong result. The team have been working hard and finding solutions to improve our qualifying performances.
“In Silverstone it was cold and wet which made for a difficult session but we still made it through to Q3 quite strongly, even if we weren’t able to go out. I’m sure Hockenheim will suit us well.”
