Lotus F1 Team driver Romain Grosjean has stated that physiologically the 2014 Formula One season was far tougher than his difficult season in 2012 when his made his Formula One return with the Enstone outfit.

The Frenchman scored the bulk of the Lotus F1 Team’s points in 2014, having finished in eighth place in both the Spanish and the Monaco Grand Prix. In 2013, Grosjean secured six podium finishes and ended the 2013 season in 7th place in the championship on 132 points compared to finishing the 2014 season in 14th place on eight points.

In 2012, Grosjean was banned for one race after causing a massive crash at the start of the Belgian Grand Prix as his Lotus E20 launched over the top of Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari, narrowly missing the Spaniard’s head.

Grosjean is hopeful that with the Lotus F1 Team making the switch to Mercedes power in 2015 that they will be back on the podium.

The Lotus F1 Team hope to take inspiration from the Williams Martini Racing Team who finished the 2013 season in ninth place, while this season they finished in third place in the championship after making the switch from Renault to Mercedes power which is exactly what Lotus will do in 2015.
