Grosjean learns from mistake

Lotus driver Romain Grosjean will be back in action when the Formula One season heads to Singapore this month after missing the Italian Grand Prix through suspension.

The Frenchman paid a heavy price for causing a pile-up on the first corner of the Belgian Grand Prix the previous week, handed the first one-race ban given to a driver since 1994.

The 26-year old has been involved in an alarming amount of incidents of opening laps this season, but Lotus team boss Eric Boullier believes his driver has learned from missing the race at Monza and watching from the garage. Jerome D’Ambrosio stepped into Grosjean’s seat for the Grand Prix in Italy, but the Frenchman will be back in the car in Singapore.

"He has definitely learned his lessons and I know he is eager to get back in the car in Singapore," said Boullier.

"He will have learned a lot because being in your car you have only one radio in your head. When you are sitting in the garage and you have both cars then you can learn much more."

In the other Lotus car, things are looking a lot more positive. Kimi Raikkonen may not have lived up to optimistic F1 betting previews by recording a race win yet this season, but the Finn’s fifth place finish in Italy now means the 2007 world champion is up to third in the drivers’ standings.

Many line betting fans seem to think a charge for the title could well be on the cards now for Raikkonen in his first season back in the sport, but Lotus will be well aware that their driver will need to begin winning races if he is going to have a real chance of challenging for the title.
