Lotus F1 Team – One race ban for Grosjean

Lotus F1 Team driver Romain Grosjean has received a 1 race ban for his part in the start line collision with McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton – the first time a ban has been handed out to a driver since 1994.

The incident, caused when Grosjean swerved across the track and inter-locked wheels with the slower starting Hamilton, lead to the two cars sliding in to Turn 1 at high speed, taking out the Ferrari of Alonso and the Sauber of Perez immediately and setting off a chain reaction that damaged several other cars.

The move will likely give Belgian driver Jerome D’Ambrosio his first chance to compete in the Lotus-Renault E20 in next race Italian GP at Monza, having joined the team as reserve driver for 2012 after racing for Marussia in 2011.
