Grosjean is back

I saw over on the Lotus Forum Roman has signed up to run along side Kimi for 2013.
Does anyone know if the races will be broadcast on DTV NBC Sports channel 220 or will it be on the regular NBC e/w network 392/3?

Did he cause any accidents yet in 2013?

If I die, my biggest fear is that my wife sells all my toys for the price I told her I bought them for...

just 2, but it was very early in the session (first lap), so they had plenty of time to repair the cars

Apexes are a lot like relationships. So tough to get right, so easy to see where they went wrong.

Well he did kick Vettel's(and everyone else's) ass at the Race of Champions last December.
I think he got his contract renewed just after that.

He's got potential, especially if left alone.

like Schumacher.... i think Grojean simply drives just past the way they allow. can't fault him (or Schumacher, or hamilton, or whoever...) for that. FIA needs to set the rules to play by.

"I really started paying attention to cars was when they came out with the Nissan Z, the first body. Then I seen the Cherokees, the old square ones, and I was like, “Wow, that’s cool.” Then I seen the Isuzu jeeps and I seen the Wranglers."

not sure I agree. Grojean need to remember that you cant win the race on the first lap, but you can loose it on the first lap.

I think on the first handful of laps, he drives just beyond his sill level.

I agree with Doug that he drives just a bit beyond his skill level sometimes.

He is young and hungry like A. Senna and the others in the past. I thought they said in the Brazil race he wasn't going to return.

I hope he's smart enough to wear a Jimmy Hat and not cause any 'accidents' in the bedroom....
