Grosjean says China result is for Jules Bianchi

Romain Grosjean's seventh place in China was the Frenchman's first score since the 2014 Monaco GP – and the Lotus driver dedicated the result to his countryman Jules Bianchi, who also made the points in that race.

China also came a little over six months after Bianchi's accident in Suzuka last year.

"When I crossed the line there were big thoughts for Jules," said Grosjean.

"Last time I scored points he was scoring points as well. I think if I can give him a little bit of energy and a little bit of something for the fight he's in – I believe if you never give up, it goes true.

"It was a s**t day, that six months anniversary. It feels hard, he's with me on my helmet, I'm sending him as much thoughts and power as I can from what we do.

"I'm just hoping that a miracle happens."
