Grosjean back to GP2?

With rumors more and more frequent regarding the possible 2010 Renault F1 lineup (assuming the team will actually stay in F1 next year), one name that seems to be off the list is Romain Grosjean.  Brought in to replace an ailing Nelsinho Piquet, Grosjean did little to improve the terrible results of the team’s 2nd driver in 2009.  No points, no decent performances, nothing at all…

Now, apart from confirmed driver Robert Kubica, we hear names such as Lucas Di Grassi, Franck Montagny, Heikki Kovalainen or even Timo Glock.

With Romain out of F1, barring any “French” miracle, could we see him back in GP2?  Though his GP2 career was very erratic, he did show speed and could solidly bring up any mid-level team to contention for some races.   He could put teams such as Piquet or DAMS back on the map in one season, if the technical side is solid.

Personally, I think it is a great gamble, but if you had the budget to support his return, wouldn’t he be on your list of potential drivers?

    There’d be nothing I would want less. Grosjean needs to move on to pursue a career in sports cars, not return to GP2 so he can be the next Pantano. Would rather see new drivers.

    Di Grassi will test for Renault BUT, he’s 99,9% garanteed in Virgin-Manor, such as Álvaro Parente.

    To such purpose, the voices that circulate in the paddock do not indicate will of the GP2 to order a model of completely new single-seater for 2011. Considering the economic crisis, it will prefer to install on puts into effect them cars of the Main Series a kit of modernization.

    Grosjean doesn’t need to be in GP2 Series anymore. Waste of money and time, and he can even waste his career in it. He should go for test driver and LMS positions if he can… One wrong move, vel DAMS or GP Racing, and his hopes for return to F1 are done.

    If he’s to I’d go for Addax or ART GP.
