F1 Brazilian Grand Prix: Grosjean ewarded with points on ‘emotional’ weekend

Romain Grosjean is one of the few drivers to progress up the order in the Brazilian Grand Prix as he secures an eighth place finish for Lotus.
Romain Grosjean says he can be satisfied with his run to eighth position in the Brazilian Grand Prix on a weekend tempered by emotion following the terror attacks in his native France.

The Lotus driver started from 14th on the grid, but was one of the few drivers to enjoy progress up the order over the course of the race, crossing the line ninth before being promoted to eighth when Felipe Massa ahead was disqualified.

Branding the race as 'fun', Grosjean was delighted to come away with a positive result after a sombre weekend brought about by the terror attacks in Paris, which left at least 129 dead.

“It was a fun race, and I enjoyed going through the field with some nice overtaking manoeuvres with our aggressive race strategy. It was quite hard to follow the cars but we had good power to overtake into turn one.

“It has been an emotional weekend so it is good to be back in the points. The next race will be my last one with the team and taking the chequered flag in Abu Dhabi will be very special but I will give my best to bring a good result.”

Grosjean now heads to Abu Dhabi for his Lotus swansong before joining the incoming Haas F1 team for 2016.
