Romain Grosjean is opting for the safest route for the remaining races of the season determined not to add to any more incidents against his name.

The Lotus driver has been involved in several collisions, mostly on the opening lap, incurring the wrath of not just the stewards but also his fellow competitors. As a result, the Frenchman is willing to be cautious in his approach until the season ends.

"We're ready to lose one or two positions at the start. It's not the end of the world,” Grosjean said adding that the focus would then be on a strategy to recover. "It's not a big deal.”

Consequently, other drivers are taking advantage of Grosjean’s delicate position.

“They know I am, a little bit less today but still, under pressure. And they'll try to go for it, which is normal. But never mind. If they overtake me on the first lap, I can get back the position later on,” he said.

"It's a cycle. There was one incident and then there was a few and I was not responsible for all of them. But you ask yourself questions and you lose the self-confidence and everything gets harder. This is why I wanted to take a different and safe approach for the last few races of the season.

“I'll be back to normal soon,” he added.
