Romain Grosjean has refused to blame Lotus after dropping out in Q1 in India, saying he also played a role in the decision.


Going out on the medium tyres, the Frenchman posted a 1:26.577 which appeared to be a solid time.

However, as one by one his rivals went out on the soft tyres, the Lotus driver began to fall.

Down in 16th place as the chequered flag was waved, there was nothing Grosjean could do as he fell one more place and was out of qualifying.

"I made the decision as well, it is not right to blame the team or myself," he told Autosport.

"We just missed it for some reason. We will look at why. Sometimes it happens."

He added: "We planned a cut-off time before qualifying and all the cars ran quicker than we expected.

"We are more or less where we wanted to be [on lap time], but it seems it was much more tight and the Option tyre performed better than this morning."
