Ran in GB with broken wing and body, and kept track with Kimi, until pitstops messed his ran run and dropped him back,
The bloke is quick and just needs the right break.
He is one of the few drivers recently to come through having won so many championships, and its not all been down to a budgetary excercise. Good luck Romain!

I really feel sorry for the guy. I mean, he has talent there's no doubt about it, he won the GP2 championship which let him enter F1 the proper way without massive sponsorship, and he has had some solid podiums in his first ever season. The crashes themselves are over, they can't be changed, but it's not the crashes that cause the damage it's the mental strain that he has to cope with. He is reluctant to try any bold moves in fear of being involved in a crash, even if it isn't his own fault. Once you have fear of something it's very hard to be able to get over that, the mental side of things is what Grosjean will have to cope with, and it must be bloody hard. I really want to see Grosjean do well. I really do.

He's got the raw pace, no doubt! It's the racecraft he needs now. For example, he sees a gap. Then makes a decision to dive across the road for it. But by the time he's made the decision and made the move, another F1 car has occupied the space. By the time he gets there, the space no longer exists and he runs that other car off the road, cos he has nowhere else to go once he commits.

Of such tight margins are the differences between "good" and "great" drivers sometimes made! He needs to change nothing else except his racecraft and decision making...
