Grosjean at Renault
Renault F1 has announced that Swiss-French driver Romain Grosjean has been appointed as its second driver for this weekend™s European Grand Prix in Valencia and for the remainder of the 2009 season. The 23-year-old has been part of Renault™s Driver Development programme (RDD) since 2006 after winning the French Formula Renault title. In 2007 he was Formula 3 Euro Series champion and in 2008 he won the GP2 Asia Series. This season he has been racing in GP2 but has been very inconsistent, winning two races early on but off the pace since then. Lucas Di Grassi will assume third driver duties in Valencia whilst continuing with his GP2 series campaign.
