GP Week : Issue 213
Both Lotuses showed an improvement in pace and, but for a collision that upset the handling of his car (with JeV), Romain Grosjean should have joined Pastor Maldonado in the points. For the latter, it was his first points for the year. It’s been a massive up-and-down one, mainly down: "It was a great fight from the very beginning; it felt good, the strategy was good and the car pace was surprisingly good!” said Pastor. “We were fully focussed, keeping the pace and managing the tyres. We did lose out in the slow-speed corners but we were very competitive in the medium and high speed turns throughout the first and last sector. That meant we could recover the time lost in the slow ones so we were in the mix. Overtaking was challenging because of the speed we have but we still took the fight to others for position, which was great.” Grosjean did well from the back row of the grid: "The race was really good, I enjoyed it. On the soft tyres, the car was quick; I could follow the Ferraris, and on prime it was a bit more difficult but still enjoyable. Fighting with JB was very very tight but definitely good fun. “It was less amusing with Jean-eric though, he broke my front wing and he broke my rear floor which made the car pretty difficult to drive afterwards. I wasn't very happy about that as the incident cost me P8. “On the plus side, it's good to be back in the points with Pastor – it's just a shame not to have been there too."
