What advice would you give to Romain Grosjean?
You’re the driver coach – what would you tell him?
Romain Grosjean may not have received 100% of the headlines on Monday morning (after Lewis Hamilton’s crazy twitter rant at Jenson Button), but press coverage of his latest first lap/first corner blunder were still plentiful.
Just two races after his Monza race ban for causing a pile up at the start of the Belgian GP, Romain was it at again last time out after clouting the back of Mark Webber at turn 2 in Suzuka. This triggered a chain reaction which saw Bruno Senna slam into the back of Nico Rosberg, putting the German out on the spot.
I actually think Webber was relatively restrained in his condemnation of Grosjean wrecking his race, branding the Frenchman a “first-lap nutcase.” It’s certainly more subdued than his comments back in 2008 after then rookie, Sebastian Vettel speared into the back of him at a soaking wet race in Fuji: “Well, it's kids, isn't it? Kids with not enough experience, doing a good job, then they fuck it all up.” (Watch it here!)
So the question remains - what is Romain Grosjean going to do or change to stop these incidents from happening? The pressure is mounting on him and there’s only 5 races left this year to prove himself at the top level. He needs to continue to show the great speed he’s clearly got, but also refrain from overly aggressive and sometimes ridiculously clumsy driving.
Put yourself in the shoes of a driver coach. What would you say to Romain heading into the Korean Grand Prix weekend? Answer in the comments below. Go for funny, crass or genuinely good advice. Best comment wins a pat on the back and a twitter shout out from no less than @enterF1!
