According to Renault boss Eric Boullier, three F1 teams are interested in signing Roman Grosjean.
Boullier who, in addition to his Renault duties also heads up Gravity, a driver management company, is reportedly considering his countryman as an immediate replacement for Nick Heidfeld.
Boullier has also told L’Equipe newspaper that three teams are interested in the 25 year old’s services for the 2012 F1 season.
Grosjean is currently leading the GP2 series and also raced for the Renault team in F1 in 2009.
Renault team owner Gerard Lopex has already admitted that the Frenchman is likely to replace Heidfeld in 2012 if Robert Kubica is not yet well enough to return.
“Vitaly (Petrov) has a contract to the end of 2012,” he said. “We could consider Vitaly with Romain, but that doesn’t depend on us. It depends on the health of Robert (Kubica).”
Boullier admits Grosjean struggled in 2009 when he made his F1 debut amid the ‘crashgate’ scandal alongside Fernando Alonso.
“As I am very close to him, I can confirm that he is different now, much more mature than two years ago,” he said.
He told Globo Esporte: “We’re waiting to see what happens with Robert.”
