Grosjean replaces d’Ambrosio in GP2

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Former F1 driver Romain Grosjean will drive for DAMS in this weekend’s GP2 race at the Hockenheimring.

According to the official GP2 website Grosjean will take the place of Jerome d’Ambrosio:

With testing strictly controlled in this category, Gravity Sport Management has made this decision in order to analyse the reasons why the d?Ambrosio/DAMS pairing has been unable to fully unlock its potential so far this season.

D’Ambrosio, a member of the Renault Driver Development programme, is currently 15th in the championship with seven points, all of which were scored at Monaco.

DAMS’s GP2 cars carry the same colours as the Renault F1 team, which Grosjean started seven races for at the end of last year.

Grosjean recently made a return to single seater racing in the Auto GP category and is second in that championship having raced in four of the eight rounds.
