Grosjean focused on the here and now

Romain Grosjean is not let the prospect of leading Lotus in 2014 distract him from the job at hand.

Following his second top-three result in as many races, Lotus have confirmed that it is only a matter of time before they re-sign Grosjean for next season.

And, added to that, there's the incentive of making him the team's lead driver as F1 welcomes in the new era of V6 engines.

"Right now I'm working on doing the very best I can at each remaining race in 2013 and I think that's the best approach for now," he said.

"As soon as the season's over I'll get a little rest and recharge my batteries, then we're back to see the new cars launched and to start testing them.

"It will be a very interesting challenge with all the new rules that are coming in for next season. A new area is coming for the sport and that's always very exciting."

But for now the 27-year-old is focused on the upcoming race, the Indian Grand Prix, where he expects Pirelli's decision to go softer will help Lotus with their grip issues.

"Our car is really performing well at the moment so I think we could be strong again.

"It's fair to say we struggled there a little last year with finding grip and getting the right setup for the cars, so hopefully we can perform better this time.

"The tyre allocation was quite hard for the track in 2012, but this year it's softer which should help us and make for better racing."
