Grosjean stays at DAMS, joins Gravity

Romain GrosjeanRomain Grosjean will stay on with DAMS for the Monza GP2 races, and has signed up with Renault Formula 1 team co-owner Gerard Lopez's Gravity Sport Management organisation.

Former GP2 title contender Grosjean initially returned to the series at Gravity's invitation when he replaced the company's Jerome D'Ambrosio at DAMS for Hockenheim following some poor results for the Belgian. He was called-up again for Spa after DAMS' other driver Ho-Pin Tung sustained back injuries at the Hungaroring, and with Tung not yet fit to return, Grosjean will race in Italy as well.

"This weekend's mission will be to build on the promising performance on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit on which Jerome and I showed the team's and car's potential," said Grosjean, who took a podium finish in Belgium. "A victory would be a marvellous reward for the efforts invested over the last few weekends by everybody."

The 24-year-old described his tie-up with Gravity as an important step towards getting him back in F1. Grosjean raced for Renault in the second half of last season following the team's split with Nelson Piquet, but struggled and was dropped in favour of his former GP2 team-mate Vitaly Petrov this year.

"This agreement with Gravity Sport Management is a great opportunity for me, and I'm very happy to be able to take advantage of it," said Grosjean. "Such a partner will enable me to concentrate on my return to top-level single-seater racing, and I hope to attain my main aim, which is still Formula 1."

This year has seen Grosjean competing in the Andros Trophy ice racing series, the GT1 World Championship and Auto GP as well as his GP2 outings, although he recently split with his GT1 team Matech.
