Romain Grosjean says his confidence is up after his recent run of good form, and he hopes to end the season on a high.
The Frenchman had a strong race in Japan, leading for much of the afternoon before ultimately losing out to the Red Bulls.“I’m feeling really good with the car, my confidence is getting higher with every race and I’m very happy with the team,” he said. “So, I’ll keep working hard to improve the areas that need improving, and we’ll keep pushing for top results right to the end of the season.”
Regarding prospects the upcoming race in India, he said: “Our car is really performing well at the moment, so I think we could be strong again. It’s fair to say we struggled there a little last year with finding grip and getting the right setup for the cars, so hopefully we can perform better this time. The tire allocation was quite hard for the track in 2012, but this year it’s softer, which should help us and make for better racing.”
Meanwhile, Grosjean says he’s not yet turned his thoughts to 2014.
“Right now I’m working on doing the very best I can at each remaining race in 2013, and I think that’s the best approach for now,” he said. “As soon as the season’s over, I’ll get a little rest and recharge my batteries, then we’re back to see the new cars launched and to start testing them. It will be a very interesting challenge with all the new rules that are coming in for next season. A new era is coming for the sport, and that’s always very exciting.”
