|Career statistics to end 2013|
|Pole Position(s)||Fastest Lap(s)|
This is one of the more pleasing stories of the 2013 season. Vilified by many for the crash-and-burn attitude he seemed to have brought with him from GP2 when he returned to F1 in 2012, Romain Grosjean ranks as one of THE drivers of 2013.
Going back to first principles – and first laps – Grosjean re-examined himself, his driving and his ambition. As a result, he completed the season in seventh place overall and can count himself unlucky not to have been even higher in the final reckoning.
