Romain Grosjean says he aims to stay out of trouble in this year’s Monaco Grand Prix following his poor showing in this race last season.
The Lotus driver damaged his car four times during the Monaco Grand Prix weekend last year. The last came when he drove into the back of Daniel Ricciardo during the race, leading the then-Toro Rosso driver to tell him “you’re an idiot”.
Grosjean defended his record in Monaco, where he won convincingly five years ago before racing in F1: “I’ve been on pole position here in GP2, won the race in GP2.”
But he admitted his form in the grand prix has not been as strong: “The other side, if you look at crashes I think I have a good record and a few corners that I know too well.”
“To be fair last year I completely missed my weekend and wherever I would have been it would have been the same story so I should just try not to do that again.
“Of course you have to respect the track and every mistake is more obvious than everywhere else. But I’ve always been quick so I’ll try to keep that in my pocket but just stay away from the race.”
