Raikkonen and Grosjean is said to have a good working relationship

Romain Grosjean is pleased that he has a good relationship with his Lotus teammate, 2007 Formula 1 world champion Kimi Raikkonen.

The Frenchman will make his return to Formula 1 after a stint with the Renault team in 2009, where he was teamed up with double world champion Fernando Alonso.

After missing the previous winter test in Barcelona because of a chassis problem, Grosjean will be back on track this week for the last two days of testing before the season opener in Melbourne.

"It's going very well. We met in December at the factory, then during the tests in February. The idea is to work hand in hand with my teammate to develop the team in the best way possible. Kimi is a good asset," said Grosjean to French website RMC Sport regarding his relationship with Raikkonen.

"He is still very good. He was F1 world champion in 2007 and he returns this year with Lotus. I hope we will do very good things this season. Is he also a competitor? There are 24 drivers on the grid, you have to beat 23 of them (laughs). Anyone who participates in a competition wants to win. An athlete who says he wants to go the Olympic games to be fifth is lying. Everybody wants to win. When you're in the car, the idea is to beat everyone else," added Grosjean.
