Grosjean: Next step is a victory

Grosjean: Next step is a victory

Romain Grosjean may be fresh from his maiden F1 podium but already the Frenchman is dreaming of bigger and better - his first race win.

Starting seventh on the grid, the Lotus racer, who is in only his first full season in Formula One, put in a steady and mature drive on his way to third place.

Grosjean's first F1 podium came on the back of his first points, which he scored in China, and, he's hoping that the next step won't be too far off.

"It was great, a great feeling so far," he said. "I'm very proud of the team.

We knew we had a good car but I think we were a little bit surprised at the beginning about where we were.

"It turned out to be not too bad in the end and I think our car is very competitive. I think we can be very happy with what we did.

"The first points is one step and the next step I thought it would take time but we can be happy and have a week off to enjoy."

He added: "I'm very happy to get my first podium. The next target is victory."
