Romain Grosjean is hoping for a stronger season half of the season, confident the circuits coming up with suit Lotus starting with Spa.
Formula One returns to action this weekend with the first race in a double-header, the Belgian GP, which Grosjean reckons will play to the strong points of his E20.
In fact, he reckons there are several tracks in the second half of the Championship that will suit the characteristics of his Lotus, prompting to the Frenchman to predict a better second half of the season.
"It should fit the E20 pretty well. The second half of the season looks good in terms of how the tracks should suit the car," said the 26-year-old.
"Hopefully we'll have everything we need to win races.
"I'm looking forward to it as it's a special track; it's Spa and also I won the GP2 Series title there last year. It'll be good to be back there again."
Heading into the final nine races, Grosjean is in an intense tussle for sixth in the Drivers' Championship, tied with Jenson Button on 76 points and just one behind Nico Rosberg.
"I'm just taking it race by race," he said. "It's very tight with myself, Jenson and Nico all covered by only two points and there's no reason why we can't keep climbing higher.
"It was good to be back on the podium before the break and I think we've got a better chance than ever to win races, so let's aim for more in the second part of the season."
Grosjean's chances of winning, a feat he has yet to achieve in F1 despite three podium finishes this season, will be given an added boost when Lotus race their new double DRS system.
"If it gives me an advantage I'm certainly looking forward to driving with it! I'm sure it will be a good thing, especially if we have it working well," he said.
"Hopefully it gives us an advantage and the race win that we want."
