Romain Grosjean does not think it will be long before Lotus pick up their first Grand Prix success and is pleased with the progress the team has made this year.
The 26-year-old Frenchman is currently eighth in the drivers' standings and has already been on the podium three times, having finished second in Canada and third in both Hungary and Bahrain.
If we win, it will be fantastic for all we have done since the beginning of the year and all we have achieved.Romain Grosjean
Grosjean also finished fourth in Spain and was sixth in China and at Silverstone and is delighted with his car. He is targeting the Belgium Grand Prix as another possible podium finish, and is 34.00 to win the race while Sebastian Vettel is 23.00 to be first in Spa. Lewis Hamilton can be backed at 13.00 and Jenson Button at 2.25.
The last time the Lotus name won a Grand Prix was when Ayrton Senna was victorious in Detroit in 1987, and Grosjean said: "I do not think the pressure (to win) is more.
"I think that F1 is already filled with pressure. If we win, it will be fantastic for the team personnel in the factory for all we have done since the beginning of the year and all we have achieved.
"And if I was the first driver to win for Lotus since Ayrton Senna, it would be something more to the process and more a cause for happiness. It would be even more of a pleasure."
