Romain Grosjean Biography

Romain Grosjean

Romain Grosjean

Naturally talented and blisteringly fast, Romain Grosjean is one of the most exciting drivers in modern Formula 1.

With his teething problems now, hopefully, behind him, 2015 should be the year where the 29-year-old becomes one of the best drivers on the grid, and proves his critics that Lotus made the right decision to keep their faith.

However, now it is he who has taken the gamble as he joins new-boys Haas F1. It could be an inspired decision or one he will regret for the rest of his career.

The Frenchman’s reckless driving earned him a one-race ban in 2012, and he has been branded as clueless by many of his peers. But just as his last chance was fading away, Grosjean showed how quick he is at the back end of 2013.

Even his, then, team-mate, Kimi Raikkonen, couldn't live with his pace.

Grosjean typical of the modern day young driver in Formula 1, having being groomed through all the junior formula’s in preparation.

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.

Grosjean was given his chance in F1 by Renault in 2009, after the controversial events following Nelson Piquet Jr's race fixing.

He 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 his talent still needed honing, and Grosjean spent another two seasons in GP2 where he became champion in 2011.

Most GP2 champions make the leap straight into F1 and Grosjean was no exception when Lotus announced him as their second driver for 2012, alongside Raikkonen.

Grosjean was clearly a new man, as he qualified third for the opening race in Australia. In a frustrating start to the season he would be 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.

His highlight was at the championship’s fourth round, in Bahrain, when he picked up his first podium with an impressive third behind Raikkonen, before he came second in Canada.

From there his season unravelled as a series of car problems, qualifying spins and crashes cost him massively and earned him an unwanted reputation on the gird.

After he caused a first lap crash in Belgium, which could have seriously injured either one of Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso or Sergio Perez. The FIA banned Grosjean from the Italian GP.

In 2013, Lotus retained him, but a difficult start to the season looked like ending his F1 career. However, a podium in the Korean GP started a fine run of form which saw him score four podiums in the final six races.

2014 was a forgettable year for the team as they produced an awful car, but Grosjean still impressed in comparison to his new team-mate, Pastor Maldonado.

2015 brought more success. Points came regularly, but the team's financial constraints meant that car development was slow. Haas promise more money, and more promise. But will they deliver?

In 2016 Grosjean moved to the new all American team called Haas. In the debut race of the brand new team Grosjean scored 6th. He started form 19th and moved up 13 places during the Australian Grand Prix. The rest of the season we saw and heard a lot of frustration.
