Lotus E21 should go well in Korean GP – Grosjean

Published

KoreanGP-51Romain Grosjean says that Lotus should go well in Korean Grand Prix; also he cautioned that they are strong in qualifying with latest package.

Grosjean share his last year experience at Korea: “Last year was my first time at the Korea International Circuit and it’s quite an interesting place. It wasn’t so hard to learn, although there are three quite different parts to it with the long straight in sector one, high and medium speed corners in sector two and then the street course nature of the final sector. The trickiest parts are definitely Turns 11 & 12 which are not easy to get exactly right, but overall it’s not too bad and I think the E21 should go well there.”

Last race weekend at Singapore Grosjean was left bitterly dissatisfied to come away with nothing after a forced retirement shattered his podium ambitions.

“It terms of lost potential, it was a pretty hard end to the weekend when we had to retire. Friday was difficult as we didn’t get much track time, then Saturday was fantastic to qualify in third on the grid. The race was going well before we had the problem and had to retire. I certainly wasn’t happy.” He added

Also he says that won’t be a repeat of any of the issues Lotus are suffered in Singapore – “Like any weekend, we want to achieve the best results we can. Hopefully there won’t be a repeat of any of the issues we suffered in Singapore as they didn’t make the weekend any easier. It would be nice to have some better luck and have a straightforward Friday, another good qualifying result and then a strong finish on Sunday.”
