That is part of racing - Grosjean

Romain Grosjean was pragmatic about his engine failure in Brazil, which brought his 2013 season to a premature conclusion.


Racing inside the top ten at the Interlagos circuit, the Lotus driver suffered a spectacular engine blow-out at Subida dos Boxes on Lap 4.

With plumes of smoke pouring out of the back of his car, Grosjean could do nothing but park it.

"The engine blew, I don't know exactly what happened," he said.

"There was a lot of smoke and I lost power so I decided to stop 70 laps too early.

"This is racing."

The Lotus driver has yet to officially be confirmed by the team for next season despite team boss Eric Boullier stating several times that it is just a formality.

For Grosjean, though, it's a "hopefully" until such a time as the announcement comes.

"I don't know [if I will still be here next season] but hopefully," he told the BBC.

"We can be proud of what we have done this season, being part of the team, but we will see what the future holds."
