The mistakes will continue and he'll be dropped mid season.

He'll be in DTM if he's lucky or the BTCC if he's really unlucky, disagree all you want but its a fact guys, open your eyes.

Plenty of accident prone drivers have gone on to better things, he deserves another chance, another fast driver who needs to develop 'incident avoidance' skills, see team mates performance this past year for a template.

What level of performance does he need to remain after 2013. Of course beating his team mate should guarantee it. But what if he only does 10% better than last year? Say he scores 100 points and Kimi gets 250?

You know what they say....you can teach someone not to crash, you can't teach them to be fast...Romain has the speed, he just needs to cut down on the mistakes...I say he'll surprise a lot of people next year

On the topic of Roman, I would like to bring something Grosjean's fans keep saying to light.

"Lighten up! Crashes are entertaining and he's bringing more excitement"-Grosjean fans

I'm sorry. I thought this was F1, not dirt oval Saturday Night sprint local series. Grosjean, yes, he's a great driver. However, saying that you'd watch him launch over driver, with the possibility of serious injury and even death to drivers, marshalls, staff and spectators for you entertainment is something I'm sure Grosjean himself would look down apon his fans saying that frowning.

I'm not a Grosjean person, but at the same time I'm not being judgemental of him. I do however I see him as a competitive driver given his podiums this year, however I believe this could be achieved if he doesn't fall off the cliff because the last thing F1 needs is another controversial driver like eddie irvine.

Senna was a crasher sometimes deliberate. He was once asked before his pre F1 career why he crashed into the rear of a backmarker and his answer was because he should not have been on there on the inside of the corner.

It astounds me when blind men use Senna's megalomaniacal traits as a justification for the malicious disregard of integrity and decency in ones conduct toward others.

Just because he did it DOES NOT JUSTIFY THE ACTION OR MENTALITY!

Bashing is kind of simplying reality.

This guy has blistering pace.
Senna, Hakkinen, Raikonnen, Irvine, they all smashed their cars multiple times in opponents, walls or pitboxes. Selective memories here?

Grosjean never was any outclassed by F1 Champ Raikonnen on sheer speed. He finished a resepectable 3 times on the podium.

My take is he will surprise many of us, including those who are sceptical right now.
