The Franco-Swiss man has accepted the ban the next weekend race at Italian Grand Prix. He admitting the race stewards’ judgments is one of the ‘worst experiences you can go through’.
Grosjean came under main fire from competitor and the media in Belgian GP following collision with Lewis Hamilton.
Recently Lotus released their normal post-race press release which included the following quote from Grosjean:
“When your life is all about racing, not being allowed to attend an event is probably one of the worst experiences you can go through. That said, I do respect the verdict of the stewards. I got a good start – despite being disturbed by Pastor’s early launch, which I think was the case for everybody at the front – and was heading into the first corner when the rear of my car made contact with the front of Lewis’s.”
“I honestly thought I was ahead of him and there was enough room for both cars; I didn’t deliberately try to squeeze him or anything like that. This first corner situation obviously isn’t what anyone would want to happen and thankfully no-one was hurt in the incident. I wish to apologise to the drivers who were involved and to their fans. I can only say that today is part of a process that will make me a better driver.”
