Romain Grosjean, Spa-Francorchamps, 2011

Romain Grosjean has won the 2011 GP2 championship in today’s race at Spa-Francorchamps.

Grosjean, who is one of Renault’s third drivers, claimed the title by finishing in third place in the feature race. He has won the championship with three races still to run.

Grosjean started seventh in today’s feature race before working his way up to third early on.

But a lengthy interruption due to a crash involving Stefano Coletti and Mikhail Aleshin left just one lap to go when the race was restarted. Grosjean finished third behind winner Christian Vietoris and Jules Bianchi.

His title rivals Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde failed to finish.

Grosjean is the seventh GP2 champion and the first driver to win the title for DAMS.

He has been tipped to drive for Renault in some practice sessions before the end of the year. He previously drove for the team at the end of 2009.
