Grosjean to make another GP2 apearance

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Romain Grosjean will race in GP2 for the second time this year at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend.

Grosjean, who started seven races for Renault at the end of last year, will drive for DAMS in the two GP2 races at Spa.

He has already driven for the team in place of Jerome d’Ambrosio at the Hockenheimring, where he failed to score despite showing good pace.

This weekend he will take the place of d’Ambrosio’s team mate Ho-Pin Tung, who was injured in a crash with Jules Bianchi in the last round at the Hungaroring.

Grosjean made his return to single-seater racing at Spa earlier this year, where he set pole position and won in Auto GP.

Also returning to GP2 at Spa this weekend is Alvaro Parente. The Portuguese driver was briefly the third driver for Virgin at the start of the year but his contract with the team ended before the season started due to a sponsorship dispute. Parente takes the place of Alberto Valerio at Coloni.
