Webber warns Grosjean to hide after Singapore shunt

Mark Webber (Singapore 2012)

All eyes will be focused on Romain Grosjean as the beleaguered Frenchman kick-starts his formula 1 season on Sunday.

After a string of incidents in 2012, the Lotus driver was finally banned for a race at Monza recently for causing the first corner chaos at Spa.

He has qualified a solid eighth for his comeback race in Singapore, well ahead of his teammate Kimi Raikkonen and alongside Red Bull’s Mark Webber on the grid.

Grosjean told Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport he is “not particularly nervous” about the start of the race.

Australian Webber, however, is.

“Yeah, he’s okay. He knows I’ve a good right hook on me so he will stay away from me,” he joked. “He better put his sneakers on if he hits me.”

Eyes on Sunday will also be on 2012’s other ‘bad boy’ Pastor Maldonado, who amid an up-and-down season qualified superbly on the front row in Singapore.

Pole sitter Lewis Hamilton, desperate to shrink the gap between himself and points leader Fernando Alonso, might be forgiven for wanting a more predictable racer with which to share Sunday’s dash to the first corner.

“I am happy for Pastor. He’s taken a lot of heat throughout the year,” said the Briton.

“Of course I want to do well tomorrow. As long as I have a good start I think I am in a good position,” Hamilton added.
