F1 Drivers


ROMAIN GROSJEAN

Born in Geneva, Romain Grosjean started karting at 14 years old. He was soon up to speed and three years later he moved into Formula Renault, where six victories in his rookie season secured him the Swiss championship.

After winning the French Formula Renault championship in 2005, he won the European title in his second season in Formula Three. In 2008 he moved into GP2, wining the Asia series alongside testing for Renault in F1.

In 2008 he became Renault's official test driver. However, when Renault dismissed Piquet midway through the season, Grosjean was promoted and made his debut in August at the European Grand Prix. In 2010 Grosjean took up a drive in the new FIA GT1 championship driving a Ford GT. He shined in the class, winning two races early in the season. He also made a return to GP2 with DAMS and finished on the podium twice at four race meetings.

In 2011 he was offered a full drive at DAMS in GP2 and took the title, impressing enough to be given a second chance in F1 in 2012 with Lotus F1 Team. After three podium finishes, Lotus has kept the faith in Grosjean and he will stay at the team in 2013.
