Renault sign Grosjean as a test driver

By on Sunday, January 30, 2011

Romain Grosjean is back in Formula One after being signed as a test driver by Lotus Renault GP. It is a chance for the French pilot to return to the sport as a race driver in 2012 as he joins Fairuz Fauzy on Renault's test bench.

"2011 will be my comeback year with a third driver spot at Lotus Renault and a whole season in GP2 and GP2 Asia with the Dams team," said Grosjean.

"To be third pilot... allows me to gain a huge amount of experience, to be in the paddock, to see people, and to understand what I was lacking in my first Formula One experience.

"Now my idea is to be a race driver in 2012," he told automoto.fr.
