Romain Grosjean admitted he is keen to put his poor performance at Canadian Grand Prix behind as he looks forward to British Grand Prix at next weekend.
The Lotus driver was given a ten-place grid penalty in Montreal after he was adjudged to have caused a collision with Daniel Ricciardo in Monaco a fortnight earlier. The Frenchman limped to a 13th-place finish and he admits he can’t wait to put the race behind him.
“The second set of tyres really didn’t work for us in Montréal and if you can’t get them to work then you’re going to have a difficult race,” he said. “Once we fitted the supersoft tyres it all went wrong. The set we used simply didn’t work for us and the tyres fell away after fewer than ten laps, which was a big surprise. So it was a frustrating race.”
The 27-year-old is currently under the spotlight for his driving style and up-and-down form. He currently sits in ninth place in the drivers’ championship on 26 points, 62 adrift of team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.
Grosjean is looking forward to a new challenge at Silverstone and he is looking to impress on the grid.
He added: “Silverstone is challenging, but it has a good feel. It’s one of the quickest tracks of the year, with legendary corners like the Magotts, Becketts, Chapel complex. It’s also a special Grand Prix for the team as the factory is very close to the track.”
