Notwithstanding Fairuz Fauzy's appointment as reserve driver, Romain Grosjean is still expected to take up a similar role with Renault in 2011.

A French commentator said last week that Swiss-born Grosjean will be with the Enstone based team this year, with boss Eric Boullier admitting he is "working very hard" to find a place for the 24-year-old.

After Malaysian Fauzy was revealed as a reserve driver for the Lotus-sponsored team in 2011, France's F1 broadcaster TF1 this week said Grosjean will be the subject of the next announcement.

The report said the announcement about Frenchman Grosjean becoming Renault's "third driver" will take place at Valencia on January 31, when the R31 car is unveiled ahead of the group test at the Ricardo Tormo track.
