Labelled as a “nutcase” last year for causing several on-track incidents, Romain Grosjean has confessed that he had to seek professional help to get back into the game.

The Lotus driver was involved in several accidents, usually on the opening lap of the Grands Prix, last season with the most notable episode at the Belgian GP which resulted in the FIA banning him for one race.

Now given another chance in 2013, the Frenchman is ready to move on.

“The secret is that I have been working hard since last September with a psychologist - and hopefully it will pay off,” Grosjean was quoted saying by the official Formula 1 website.

“I was the first one to be in pain when it was going wrong, so I promised to ‘do things’ rather than ‘not do things’ ever again,” he pointed out.
