Boullier denies Grosjean's 'ghosts' reappearing

Boullier believes Romain Grosjean made an excellent start to the season, correcting everything he was accused of last year

Jun.8 (GMM) Eric Boullier has leapt to the defence of Romain Grosjean, who many in the paddock say is reverting to his 'nutcase' ways of 2012.

Frenchman Grosjean had an horror weekend in Monaco, crashing four times and incurring a ten-place grid penalty for this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.

But Lotus team boss Boullier told France's RMC: "Nobody should say, just because of a tough weekend, that the ghosts of 2012 have reappeared.

"He made an excellent start to the season, correcting everything he was accused of last year," he added.

Boullier revealed he sat down with Grosjean for a detailed discussion about Monaco after the troubled weekend in the Principality.

"Our discussion was to reassure him," he said, amid earlier rumours Lotus might replace the 27-year-old with reigning GP2 champion Davide Valsecchi.
