> F1NEWS> Grosjean absolves Zuber of blame GP2 Championship leader Romain Grosjean has absolved Andi Zuber of blame for the accident which launched the Frenchman into the catch fencing at the Tabac corner in the sprint GP2 race in Monaco. Speaking exclusively to GPWeek the day after the incident, Grosjean insisted that the crash had been a racing incident. “It was funny, no?”he joked. “He went to the left to defend the position because he had a very poor exit of the chicane, so I went to the right to wait until Swimming Pool corner to try and overtake, and when I came back to the right he braked when I was coming back and our wheels touched. And in open wheels, when they touch, they go flying. If we’d had 20cm more we would have been fine.” Asked if he thought anything could have been done to have avoided the incident, Grosjean was unsure. “It’s difficult to say. It’s Monaco, it was a tough fight and the big 10 shame was that I didn’t even want to overtake at that corner. It’s a little bit frustrating but on the other hand we’re both fine and that is what matters.” Grosjean leads the title race after dominating the first two weekends of the championship. Fastest in all practice and qualifying sessions, and with two race wins and two fastest laps under his belt, he says he is enjoying his time with his new team Addax. “The team is doing a very, very good job. We have something with the car that is very good and obviously now we have to keep working and trying to keep this advantage. At the moment it’s a very good start to the season.” With the next race in two weeks’ time in Turkey, Grosjean also had an ominous warning for his rivals. “I didn’t like so much Barcelona and Monaco, but Turkey I like. In Turkey I won my first race last year and I love this new track because it’s like an old track but with all the security of a new one.” Close call: Grosjean, above, and Zuber, below, had a big shunt at Monaco, but it seems not even feelings were hurt ...
