D’Ambrosio set to race for Lotus at Italian GP

Jerome D’Ambrosio looks set to race for Lotus at next weekend’s Italian Grand Prix after race stewards handed Romain Grosjean a one-race ban.

Although the team have yet to confirm who will contest the Italian Grand Prix alongside Kimi Raikkonen, Eric Boullier has said it is very likely that d’Ambrosio will race.

When asked about the d’Ambrosio’s chances of competing in Monza, Boullier replied: “Very high. There are many drivers around who are looking for a drive. We will consider first Jerome, who is our third driver. He has most of the chance to drive the car.

“But I need to sit down with him. I need to do a couple of things and then we will see.”
