Hi Romain, what are you up to until January now that the season is over? Romain Grosjean: I’m doing a lot of physical training to keep fit throughout the winter period so this will be ongoing! I will mainly spend time with my family and do a bit less travelling although I will be going on holiday for a few days! In the end the break isn’t actually that long and the new season will be around the corner before we know it.
A major backer of the Lotus team has switched allegiances within the F1 pitlane.
Lotus is set to announce that Romain Grosjean is staying with the Enstone team in 2015.

Romain Grosjean has revealed an exit clause will allow him to walk away from Lotus at the end of the season.
