Roman Grosjean Jules never retreats
Roman Grosjean was so excited accident Jules Bianchi in Suzuka that he had to work hard to get back behind the wheel of a Formula 1 in Sochi. In his blog in the newspaper L'equipe pilot Lotus talked about the relationship with Jules.
Roman Grosjean "Jules rarely overlap, but the career ladder always follow each other. Debuting in formulas, he won the title in the French Formula Renault, together with the SG team, where I was also. In Formula 3, he won the title, as I, at ART. We even had one engineer.
Actually, in the Junior series, we met only once, in 2011, in GP2. And our fight was very intense, especially in Turkey, where we encountered in the Sunday race. But there is something that unites us is the attitude of irreconcilable rivalry.
I remember one of our first conversations. It happened in Dubai in 2008, during the training, organized by the French Federation of motor sports. It was early in the season in GP2. I was older, and Jules made his debut. He came on the starting grid with the other racers. In his eyes, felt the fighter's instinct. It was obvious that he wants resolute. That amazed me.
Jules not only a great guy, he is a very strong opponent. That was my first impression. When he competed in karting, he was spoken of as a racer who never retreats. Partly, as I do.
Organized my coach Jean-Pierre Frison training of the French Federation of motor sports in Chamonix, organized a funny competition between racers who will show you the best time in the ascent snowshoes on snow-covered slope. Jules tried to beat my record. He tried twice, and eventually succeeded. He is strong
I thought Jules was my brother in the race. I am concerned that happened to him. However, like all other racers. I miss him dearly. Sitting behind the wheel of the morning practice sessions last Friday in Sochi, for the first time I felt vulnerable. After the accident, Jules a little less than a week, it was hard again go back on the track, but we need for him to continue to race, to compete in the Formula 1, because, as I said, Jules is a real fighter who never backs".
