Romain Grosjean's Driver Bio

After a troubled first three seasons with unreliable speed and several high profile collisions, Romain Grosjean finally settled into his role as a driver with one of the fastest cars on the grid. By mid-2013 he had transformed into a mature and reliable driver chasing down and beating some of the sports finest drivers.

Grosjean's Career Low

At the first corner of the Belgian GP in 2012 Romain was seen to have caused a huge accident by forcing Lewis Hamilton off the road.  Romain was given a one race ban and a 50,000 euro fine following the incident.

Starting from the same unreliable position as 2012 but with higher highs hitting the podium for the first time. By mid season Grosjean's form transformed into a mature and controlled driver finally worthy of the race seat he held.

A tough season with too many incidents to warrant his race seat. After a particularly bad first corner accident at Spa Romain was handed a one race ban for dangerous driving. Hidden by the bad races there were flashes of speed with Romain consistently matching flying team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.
