The Lotus speedy Romain Grosjean expecting Coanda effect exhausts will give some good performance at this weekend race at Korea. He added that possibly its boost their pace, Lotus is the only team not to use this concept exhaust.
Following the race start error conversation at the Japanese GP paddock, Grosjean says that he fully focusing clean start. Again he said he is not a stupid and still conscious of the risk, and says sorry.
“Hopefully some good performance. We were one of the only teams not to use it so it may help us to go quicker. We know our weakness this year on the car and this may help us to improve quite well.” Grosjean said about new exhaust for Korean GP during the press conference.
“Yes, Mark [Webber] came to see me and I completely understand that he was unhappy. The only thing I could say was to apologies and that’s what I did.”
“I’m clearly conscious of the risk at the start, I’m working on changing on quite a lot of things but work doesn’t come from one day to the other one. There is a process going on. I said I was very sorry. I’m not stupid and I’m conscious of the risk. And hopefully by now it will be a different and I will not make the mistake of focusing on the wrong targets.”
The Lotus duo Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean is one of the strangers in the Korean International circuit. The reporters ask him, what is the planning to do different Korean circuit in this weekend. Grosjean claim, one of the main objectives that must avoid first lap mistakes.
“Not having any contact on the first lap, that’s clearly one of the objectives. I’d say there’s work in progress and it takes a bit of time but yeah, it’s a cycle as well: things have been going bad, and the more it goes bad… I’m conscious of the risk at the start.” The French man said.
“The Spa accident was quite impressive and I was the first one to be happy that Fernando had nothing [injured], I’m conscious of the risk; I paid the price as well for my mistake. In the team we spoke quite a lot; they are not happy, I am not happy the way we have been going through the first laps. There is 550 people working at Enstone to give us the best car and if you ruin everything in the first 100m it’s not good. I’m conscious of all of that and will try to take as many precautions as possible to go through the first lap – and then normally in the race we are OK.”
