Grosjean expecting competitive weekend

Romain Grosjean says he is anticipating a solid three days in Belgium this weekend as the Formula 1 season steps into its second half of the season.

Grosjean is the is the fourth-highest scorer of the two race weekends, having scored 23 points in Hungary and Germany.

“It’s going to be good. If we have the pace we displayed in Budapest.. then I think good things could well be possible,” Grosjean said to F1.com.

“[Spa Francorchamps] should fit our car pretty well. In fact, the second half of the season looks pretty good overall in terms of how the tracks should suit the E21 (Lotus’ 2013 car),” he said.

The Frenchman suffered a string of pointless results from the fifth to the ninth race of this year while team-mate Kimi Raikkonen notched up 32.

But Grosjean bounced back at the German Grand Prix, qualifying fifth and being a serious contender for the race victory until late in the event.

Third place on the grid in Hungary provided him the opportunity to once again fight for the win, but a disappointing drive left him sixth by the chequered flag.

He was banned from last year’s Italian Grand Prix after starting a multiple-car pile-up at last year’s Belgian Grand Prix.

Grosjean has scored 49 points in the first ten races of 2013 and is currently 85 behind his team-mate.
