Grosjean predicts Lotus improvement

Romain Grosjean is confident that Lotus can enjoy a successful completion to the 2014 Formula 1 season.

With 11 events of the 19 having passed, Grosjean has managed to score an extremely disappointing eight points, while Pastor Maldonando has yet to secure a top-10 finish.

However, Grosjean believes that the team can greatly improve their fortunes during the remainder of the campaign.

“Despite the difficulties so far, I feel positive for the rest of the season to come,” he said.

“We have seen that there have been many issues since the start of the year and even before but, as with everything in life, you have to look forward, and this is exactly what I am doing.

“This is now my third full season in F1 and although the disappointments always hurt, I am also mature enough to know that when things get tough you are able to learn more and to try to work toward being successful again. I really hope we can do that together as a team for the remainder of the year. That is the aim.”

Grosjean finished eighth at the Monaco Grand Prix in late May. However, that was the last time that Lotus were able to win World Championship points, although the Frenchman predicts a positive outcome at the Belgian Grand Prix next weekend.

“Since Monaco, we have had a succession of really hard races where, for many reasons, we have not been in the position to claim any points,” explained the Frenchman.

“For Spa, I am hoping that there will be some improvements so that we can show the potential which has been seen on a few occasions, like at Barcelona (where Grosjean also come home eighth).

“We have to reverse the problems that have held us back and I believe that if we get that, then we can post more points on the board.” (setanta)
