Martin Brundle is tipping the furore surrounding Romain Grosjean’s antics to calm down in the coming weeks.
In Korea recently, the Frenchman was notably cautious on track, amid suggestions he faced multiple race bans if he got himself into yet more trouble. Grosjean has been involved in several incidents near the start of races so far this year, and was banned at Monza.
But former McLaren driver and British commentator Brundle backed the 26-year-old, insisting: “You can make a fast driver more cautious, but you can’t make a cautious driver faster.
“Romain just needs a few races under his belt without incident, then the criticism will subside,” he is quoted by the German-language Speed Week.
