Romain Grosjean is a Formula 1 driver at the Haas F1 team. Grosjean, 32, achieved his best season in F1 during the 2013 season while competing for Lotus F1 team. That season, the Frenchman finished 7th in the drivers’ standings and picked up six podiums.

Romain Grosjean: Speeding through the Formulas
Although Romain Grosjean races under the French flag, he was born in Switzerland to a Swiss father and a French mother. As he won all ten rounds in the 2003 series of Formula Lista Junior, he moved straight to the French Formula Renault the following year. By 2005, he had mastered this series and became champion after winning ten races. 2005 was also the year he made his debut in Formula three, but only competed in the Macau Grand Prix. The Frenchman flew through the Formulas and earned a permanent seat in the 2006 Formula 3 Euro Series.
His opening season was rough, but a change of teams in the winter revitalised his form as he charged up the standings. By round nine, he took top spot and went on to hold it for the remaining races. In typical Grosjean style, he was raising up the ranks once again and into the inaugural GP2 Asia series and won the first round. His title win earned him a place in the 2008 GP2 series but was ousted out by Nico Hulkenberg and Pastor Maldonado after just one year.
Making headway into Formula 1
Renault F1 team gave him a test seat for the 2009 season, replacing Nelson Piquet Jr who started to drive full-time in Formula 1. It wasn’t long before Grosjean would replace Piquet Jr after the German left Renault following crash where the team ordered him to crash in the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix. In his opening season, Grosjean failed to pick up any points and was dropped back down to GP2.
In his second GP2 stint, he raced for DAMS and competed full-time in 2011. A year in which he won the championship on the penultimate round in Belgium. In December 2011, Grosjean was announced as the Lotus Renault F1 driver for the following season and would be pitted against 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen. Do you remember the huge pile-up at the start of the 2012 Belgian Grand Prix? It was Grosjean who was behind that as he drove into Lewis Hamilton ahead of the first corner. The Frenchman was given a race ban for his antics. Further first lap crashes in the remaining part of the season caused some concern about his quality of driving.
Life at Haas
Grosjean remained at Lotus until the end of the 2015 season after he was announced he would drive for a new team; Haas F1. He finished sixth in his opening race making history as the only team to achieve points finish on debut. He will drive for Haas in 2019.
Is Romain Grosjean a chef?
Grosjean married French journalism Mario Jollès Grosjean in June 2012, and they have three children. But in 2017, Together they published a cookbook called Cuisine et Confidences with his wife. The book turned out to be successful.
