Bernie suggests eye test for Grosjean

Bernie suggests eye test for Grosjean

As F1 puts heads together to find a solution to Romain Grosjean's first lap mishaps, Bernie Ecclestone reckons an eye test is what is needed.

In the wake of yet another first lap crash and penalty in last Sunday's Japanese GP, there have been several suggestions about what could be done to help Grosjean.

Jenson Button says he needs to "sort his s**t out" while Mark Webber, who he crashed into on Sunday, believes another "holiday" is needed or perhaps a different starting grid altogether for the Lotus driver.

However, Ecclestone has a suggestion of his own.

"There might be something wrong with his peripheral vision," the F1 supremo told the Daily Express.

"He's quick but he has been involved in a lot of problems at the start.

"I would definitely suggest he has his eyes tested because he has problems seeing what is happening around him."
