One of the major talking points following the Korean Grand Prix was Romain Grosjean’s annoyance that he was not allowed his second place back after teammate Kimi Raikkonen passed him towards the end of the race.
Grosjean had been running a strong second until the safety car period but a slight mistake allowed Raikkonen past. But unlike in Britain and Germany where Grosjean was ordered to surrender track position, the Frenchman was told to keep racing.
After an indifferent season, it appears as though Grosjean is now finding some late-season form, keen to prove himself as the Lotus No. 1 in light of Raikkonen’s imminent departure and the likely arrival of Nico Hulkenberg, reported by BBC Sport.
It will be interesting to see who gets the upper hand in Japan.
