Formula One News » F1 β Romain Grosjean: No confidence issues Posted on 23/04/2013
After what many considered a tentative start to the season romain Grosjean bounced back with a podium finish at the Bahrain grand prix and insisted he was not suffering from a lack of self-confidence but a lack of confidence with his car.
After Alain Prost said Grosjean was suffering from self-confidence issues, Grosjean bounced back with a podium finish at the Bahrain grand prix and by saying “I think that the fact that you’re able to come back from a very difficult situation proves that I think he was wrong.
“I haven’t seen him this year, I have a deep respect for what he did but I think it’s easy to speak when you are not here.”
“We got a bit lost last year. Our struggle mid-season – Hockenheim, Budapest and Spa-Francorchamps – and then we came back.
“There is so much technology with those cars and it’s true that Pirelli tyres are not easy to drive and every time we have a small problem somewhere it makes it worst but when you manage to get it right then it’s OK.
“It was just something with the feeling of the car; when you’re not confident with your car it’s not self-confidence, it confidence in your car, there’s nothing you can do.”
