Podiums remain Grosjean's target

Podiums remain Grosjean's target

Despite their struggles so far this season, Lotus go to every Grand Prix with a podium finish as a target, according to Romain Grosjean.

The Frenchman has a good record at Sakhir, where this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix takes place, finishing in third place in the last two races behind winner Sebastian Vettel and then-team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.

The Frenchman was also buoyed by his 11th place finish at Sepang last week, the first time he has completed a full race this year.

"It's a good track and I'm happy to go back there," Grosjean told crash.net ahead of this week's Bahrain GP.

"I'm especially looking forward to the first night race at a circuit I like. Twice I've raced there in Formula One and twice I've been on the podium. So that's a good record! We were not very successful in the pre-season tests, but hopefully there will be some more updates and performance from our side.

"I'm sure everyone is going to work hard even though there are just a few days before Bahrain. The race finish at Sepang is a big encouragement. No matter what the challenge, we are aiming for podiums and strong performances wherever we go.

"To make major progress we need more days like Saturday and Sunday in Malaysia, where we learned a lot about the car. There are some encouraging signs. We know we have a lot of work ahead, but we also know which areas to work on. We will try new things in Bahrain and I'm confident the car will be better."
