Lotus driver Romain Grosjean insists he hopes his recent run of poor form will come to an end this weekend at the German Grand Prix.

Grosjean made a positive start to the season but has failed to trouble the scorers since his podium finish in Bahrain.

His recent dip in form has seen the Frenchman slip to ninth in the Drivers’ Championship with just 26 points to his name, leaving the team fourth in the Constructors’ Championship.

The 27-year-old has been trailing behind his team-mate, Kimi Raikkonen, for the majority of the campaign, with the Finn currently sitting in third place behind former world champion Fernando Alonso and current champion Sebastian Vettel.

The former Renault man has only taken part in the event at the Nurburgring once, last year when he stuttered to an 18th-place finish.

Grosjean said: “We’ve got new parts on the car and we certainly have the pace for some strong results.

“The last few races have been frustrating for various reasons, so if we can get a few solid weekends we should be able to get some decent results and score good points.

“The ‘Ring is quite a nice track with a quite a lot to it. There’s a really interesting mix of corners which means you have plenty to think about over the course of a lap; you’re certainly kept busy at the Nurburgring!

“The first section relies on mechanical grip and turn one can be interesting at the start of the race if people go too deep into the corner.”
