Romain Grosjean happy to ‘lose places’ to avoid start crashes

Romain Grosjean has vowed to continue his overly-cautious approach to the start of grands prix.

The Frenchman was noticeably guarded on the run to the first corner in Korea two weeks ago, having been reportedly warned that more start crashes could mean a multiple-race ban, or possibly even the loss of his Lotus seat for 2013.

So Grosjean, 26, is happy to go slow for now.

“We are happy to lose a couple of places at the start to avoid accidents; it’s not the end of the world,” he is quoted by the Times of India newspaper.

“It is the first step of the approach (and) I plan to follow this approach to the end of the season,” he revealed.

His obviously-careful strategy for the otherwise-vigorous opening metres of a grand prix has, however, been noticed by his rivals, Grosjean acknowledged.

“(Other) drivers are already starting to take advantage because they know I am under pressure. But it is alright as long as I am not involved in another incident,” he said.
