Grosjean back to GP2?
November 16, 2009 6 Comments
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?
