2012 Spa start crash: Romain Grosjean’s Lotus flies over Fernando’s Alonso’s Ferrari

Romain Grosjean’s full debut season 2012 formula 1 season was one that promised so much but delivered plenty of disappointment. The talented Frenchman matched and even out paced his illustrious team mate Kimi Raikkonen in the season’s early stages, but his lack of temperament and knack for hitting other cars left him with a one race ban and an unwanted reputation.

So it just goes to show how highly rated he is by Lotus F1 as they had no reservations about retaining him for the 2013 season, in which they hope to be competing for the championship. There is no doubt that Grosjean has the pace to take pole positions and win races, but the 26 year old will be expected to add some much needed race craft to his repertoire. He showed glimpses of this last 2013 F1 season, but it needs to be done all the time from now on.

Grosjean is the typical modern day young driver in formula one, having being groomed through all the junior formula’s in preparation for motor sports finest formula.  Championships and success has followed him through his junior career as he lifted the French Formula Renault, Formula Three Euro series and Auto GP championships.

After victory in the GP2 Asia championship in 2008 Grosjean was given his chance in formula one at Renault in 2009 after the controversial events following Nelson Piquet’s race fixing. Grosjean had an unspectacular introduction to the sport and failed to earn a single point in seven races, while being substantially slower than team mate Fernando Alonso and the causer of a several high profile crashes.

It was clear that the talent still needed honing and Grosjean spent another season in GP2 where he became the champion in 2011. Most GP2 champions make the leap straight into formula one and Grosjean was no exception when Lotus, formally Renault, announced him as their second driver for 2012.

2012 Bahrain podium: 1. Vettel 2. Raikkonen 3. Grosjean

This was clearly a new Romain Grosjean as he put the Lotus in third for the opening race in Australia where he subsequently retired. In a frustrating start to the season he would regularly seen towards the front of the grid in qualifying but a series of first lap incidents always hampered his races and cost him points. The highlights were at the 2012 championships 4th round, in Bahrain, Grosjean picked up his first podium with an impressive third behind team mate Raikkonen and a seasons best finish of 2nd in Canada.

From there his season unraveled as a series of car problems, qualifying spins and crashes cost him massively and earned him an unwanted reputation on the gird. After causing a first lap crash in Belgium, which could have seriously injured either one of Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez the FIA banned Grosjean from the Italian GP citing dangerous driving.

His record from his return to the end of the season was solid and an 8th place finish in the champion ship proves that. 2013 was 2012 in reverse. A poor start and a good finish. However, nothing less than consistent results the whole way through will prolong his erratic F1 career.
