Lotus duo Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado remain confident that they can challenge for points on a consistent basis across the second half of the 2014 Formula 1 campaign.

Lotus has endured a trying season, with Grosjean's eighth place finishes in Spain and Monaco accounting for all of their points this year.

Nonetheless, both drivers are sure that they can fix the issues plaguing the E22 and return to the top 10 positions.

"Since Monaco we have had a succession of really hard races where for many reasons we have not been in the position to claim any points," said Grosjean.

"For Spa I am hoping that there will be some improvements so we can show the potential which has been seen on a few occasions, like at Barcelona. We have to reverse the problems that have held us back and I believe that if we get that then we can post more points on the board."

Maldonado, who has not scored a point since last year's Hungarian Grand Prix, echoed his team-mate's sentiments.

"It would be difficult to give a clear aim [for the rest of 2014] other than improvement and fighting for points every race," he said.

"We have seen flashes of big promise from the E22. If everything is running right and the team continues to push then we can get more points for sure. As a team we will stay together with a clear mission to achieve the maximum.

"That way we will come back stronger and become a force in 2015. But first we are hungrier than ever to get back in to the mix for points again in 2014."
