Grosjean set for Race of Champions return


Romain Grosjean will return to the Race of Champions this year, at the former Olympic Stadium in London Nov. 20-21.

The Frenchman was a famous Champion of Champions in 2012, having beat Tom Kristensen, Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel along the way.

Grosjean joins Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Nico Hulkenberg and Felipe Massa as current Formula 1 drivers in this year’s ROC.

“I’m delighted to be coming back to the Race Of Champions,” Grosjean said, via the ROC website. “This is a great event and there are so many reasons that we all want to return every year. The main thing is that everyone involved just loves racing and driving different cars – so trying out such a wide range of machinery is driving heaven for all of us.”

Grosjean is heading into his final few Grands Prix with Lotus F1 Team, before he shifts to the new Haas F1 Team next season.
