Jerome d’Ambrosio will race at Italian Grand Prix

Published

on

Lotus confirmed that Jerome d’Ambrosio will take Romain Grosjean’s role for this weekend at Italian Grand Prix. Ex Marussia F1 driver, D’Ambrosio currently works for Lotus as reserve driver role.

Last Grand Prix at Belgian Grand Prix, Lotus guy Grosjean received one race ban for causing start-line huge crash.

Lotus team principal Eric Boullier recently said that it was d’Ambrosio’s great opportunity to start a better position.

“When we signed Jerome as our third driver we signed a man who is highly motivated, fresh, talented and who contested the full 2011 season,” Boullier said. We hope that this will pay dividends when he drives the car this weekend in Monza.

“We know that Jerome is well integrated into the team and that he did a good job when he drove the E20 at the Mugello test. Now he has the challenge of a grand prix at the challenging circuit of Monza, in a car which is capable of finishing on the podium.”

“My desire for 2012 has always been to get back into the seat of a Formula 1 car so I am grabbing this opportunity with both hands,” he said.

“Monza is a fantastic circuit and I can’t wait to take to the track on Friday. As third driver I have worked with the team at every grand prix, attending all the briefings and meetings that the race drivers do, so I am well prepared in this respect.

“Monza is a superb circuit, but it is also quite a technical one so I am not underestimating the task ahead of me. I want to reward the faith that the team has in me with a good haul of points from the race. I will hand the wheel back to Romain after Sunday’s race and I hope that this one showing in Italy will allow me to show my capabilities fully.”
