Lotus will improve on fourth in 2013 – Grosjean



Romain Grosjean believes that Lotus will try to improve on fourth for 2013 Formula 1 season. Also he is claims that there is no reason for why Lotus does a better performance.

In 2012, Grosjean took three podium finishes at Bahrain, Canadian, and Hungarian Grand Prix’s. Lotus earned 303 championship points’ ahead of Mercedes GP with 10 podium finishes.

The Swiss-French man involved in some of incidents throughout the second-half of the race, mostly he involved number of clashes during the opening laps of races. He made a crucial crash in Belgium GP opening lap, and he was handed a one-race ban for causing a crash at the start which resulted, title contenders Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton forced out from the crash.

“We will try to improve on fourth, that’s for sure,” Grosjean told Autosport.

“If we do everything right, there is no reason why we can’t do better than that.

“The car was good this year, the regulations are not changing a lot, the team is working hard and I’m really looking forward to seeing the car and to see what it can deliver. The objective will be to do better and better year after year, starting in 2013.”

“We learned a lot this year about the car, the tyres, the set-up of an F1 car,” said the Frenchman.

“We were quite good at the start of the year, but even in the last two grands prix we were looking good. We solved our little issues, got a very good set-up for the end of the year and I’m confident that in winter testing we can try the different set-up ideas that we had in the season but didn’t have time to try.

“From there, we will have a set-up range to best prepare for the race weekends and be able to take the right decisions.”
