Grosjean wants race wins and titles

Grosjean wants race wins and titles

Romain Grosjean believes he is ready to lead Lotus as he chases his first grand prix win in 2014.

This season will mark the Frenchman's third as a full-time Lotus driver while for the first time he has a new team-mate.

Partnered with Kimi Raikkonen for the past two years, this campaign Grosjean will race alongside former Williams man Pastor Maldonado.

And as the more experienced with the team, Grosjean is looking forward to taking on a team leader role.

"I think continuity will be important this year with all the rule changes, and it's my third year at Enstone so it feels like home," said the 27-year-old.

"I like the team and I think we do a very good job together so I'm happy to keep going, and I'm happy that we're together for this challenge.

"We have a common aim for the future and we want to win races and win Championships.

"We'll work as hard as we did to achieve even more than last year. I am ready to lead the way with this challenge."

Grosjean does however enter this year's Championship still seeking his first grand prix victory.

Although he has claimed nine podium results, the first win still eludes him.

"I don't know when it will come, I've come close a few times and nine podiums with the team is a good record. We just need to keep doing our best, keep trying to optimise everything we can from the first day we have on a race track to the Sunday and to get a good car.

"I trust the people here to try to give me all the tools we need to achieve that win - it's a good car, a good engine, we have good strategy, we have good engineers and mechanics, and a good driver.

"So I'm looking forward to try and will go for it, and the day it comes, we'll have a big party!"
