The 26-year old Frenchman will remain the teammate of Kimi Raikkonen who finished a solid third in the points in 2012. Grosjean himself scored three podiums in the 20 race schedule and collected 96 points which was good for eighth but he did miss one race at the Italian Grand Prix. That was due to the reckless move he made the week before at the Belgian Grand Prix on the start which drew a lot of criticism and earned him a one race suspension.
Despite some other risky maneuvers and a lot of speculation that he would be replaced at Lotus, Grosjean is back.
“It’s superb to have the support of everyone at Enstone,” Grosjean said. "I’m really looking forward to rewarding their faith when we take to the track in Australia. I learnt a lot in my first full season in Formula 1 and my aim is to put these lessons into practice with stronger and more consistent performance on track next year. There are a lot of exciting developments occurring behind the scenes at Enstone and I am very excited with the prospect of the E21. I’ve already had my seat fitting and spoken with all the personnel involved with the build of the new car. I just can’t wait to get behind the wheel.”
