Jul.20 (GMM) Romain Grosjean flashed his usual grin at Hockenheim as he jokingly dismissed F1 legend Sir Jackie Stewart's offer.

After the Lotus driver was crowned in the media as one of F1's 'crash kings' of 2012, 73-year-old triple world champion Stewart reportedly offered to coach and mentor him.

Grosjean smiled that he is too busy for that.

"It's very tight at the moment and I've a honeymoon to do," said the recently-married Frenchman.

More seriously, he explained: "I used to work with a coach and I don't feel that I need one today."
