Biography

The 2013 campaign, however, saw Grosjean’s reputation transformed by a season of largely mature, measured - and fast - drives. These garnered six podium appearances, including an excellent second place in Austin, and he clearly outperformed world champion team mate Raikkonen in later races. 

Not surprisingly Grosjean was retained by Lotus for 2014, but the season proved to be an unhappy one for both team and driver. Pre-season struggles manifested themselves in an uncompetitive car, and while Grosjean was able to hustle his way to eighth in Spain and Monte Carlo, they would be his only points scores of the year. In part buoyed by Lotus’s switch from Renault to Mercedes power for 2015, he nevertheless agreed to extend his deal with the Enstone-based team for 2015.
