Romain Grosjean has had an eventful second coming in his return to Formula 1. Flashes of speed and podium finishes have been overshadowed by eight first lap accidents and the first driver ban from a Grand Prix in over ten years.
As much as he’s blotted his copybook, at least Romain has the support of his team principal, right? Eric Boullier has Romain’s back, right?
Something tells me that Romain might be left off the Christmas list…
Thanks to WTF1.co.uk for the gif.
Rrrrright…Eric doesn’t look pleased. Rumors are abound that Heikki Kovalainen and Kamui Kobayashi are in the hunt for his seat. Stay tuned, the cards may be a-shuffling…
What do you think? Should Romain stay in Formula 1?
I know, I know. I’ve been posting a lot of Formula 1 content lately, However with the end of the season just passing by, these things are just top of mind lately.
If Romain drives the Lotus F1 car like he did during GP2 in 2011, we are in for one hell of a Formula 1 season next year.
So, I’m going to say once again that GP2 commentators are some of the most entertaining in the sport today!
Romain Grosjean becomes GP2 Champion!
Romain Grosjean!!! Some might remember Romain from 2009 where he filled in for Nelson Piquet Jnr after he was dismissed from Renault (then ING Renault F1). Romain was dominant for most of the season, apart from having the off mishap at the start.
Some questioned his ability in 2009, but remember in each race in 2009 where his team-mate was twice Formula One World Champion, Fernando Alonso; Romain managed to qualify within 0.5 seconds of Fernando, and for a rookie, that’s not bad.
