Grosjean wanted YDT run

While many regular drivers opted out of the Young Driver Test, Romain Grosjean says he would have relished a run.


Formula One was in action at Silverstone this past week with mainly young drivers putting in three days of the British track during which the revised Pirelli tyres were run.

Although teams were allowed to run their regular race drivers for one day, Lotus opted not to.

Asked whether he was 'frustrated' by the decision, Grosjean said: "As a driver, you always want to be in the car getting as much experience as possible; especially when there's something new like different tyres.

"The tyres we used at the Nürburgring suited us pretty well, so let's hope the latest version will also suit us at the Hungaroring."

Grosjean heads to the Hungaroring determined to secure another Budapest podium and carry on the form that put him in the top three last time out in Germany.

"It's always great to stand on the podium. I can remember feeling frustrated last year in Budapest as we did have a chance to be fighting for the win before we got held up by a driver who didn't respect the blue flags, but that's certainly a better frustration than missing out on the podium or even worse. Taking third in Germany was great so I certainly have a positive feeling heading to Hungary.

"It was a great result for the team and we had a very strong race. I was able to push really well in my first stint and thought I had a chance at one stage to challenge for the win, but the Safety Car meant I lost all the advantage I'd built up at that stage of the race.

"That then decided the strategy for us and ultimately we weren't fast enough to challenge for the win at the end. There are a lot of positives to take from Germany so we're very keen to maintain the momentum from that good result heading to Budapest."
