Grosjean confirms F1 numbers selection

Romain Grosjean: Only a few days before the assignment of numbers... here are the three I selected: 8, 29 and 11!
Lotus driver Romain Grosjean has confirmed he has picked numbers #8, #29 and #11 for the duration of his career in F1

“Happy New Year to all!” he wrote on his official Facebook page. “All my wishes of happiness, success and health. Only a few days before the assignment of numbers... here are the three I selected: 8, 29 and 11!”

Drivers will be assigned permanent numbers from now on, as announced last month following a meeting of the F1 Strategy Group and the Formula One Commission in Paris.

“Drivers will be asked to choose their race number, between #2 and #99, for the duration of their career in the FIA Formula One World Championship. Number #1 will be reserved for the current World Champion, should he choose to use it,” explained a statement to the media.

“If more than one driver chooses the same number, priority will be given to the driver who finished highest in the previous year's championship.”

Thus far a number of drivers have revealed their choices, including Ferrari duo Fernando Alonso (#14) and Kimi Raikkonen (#7), as well as Mercedes man Nico Rosberg (#6, #5 and #9 – in order of preference), Williams pairing Felipe Massa (#19) and Valtteri Bottas (#77, #17 and #11), plus Sergio Perez (#11), Jean-Eric Vergne (#25, #21 and #27) and Jules Bianchi (#7, #27 and #77).
