Romain Grosjean is capable of challenging Formula 1's best on his day - but those performances are few and far between. This is the conundrum of one of grand prix racing's genuine enigmas.

Grosjean is one of the most infuriatingly brilliant drivers in the history of grand prix racing. Brilliant because he's as fast as anyone when things are right and he has produced some scintillating drives during his decade in F1.

If that were possible, he'd have reached that promised land by now and emerged as one of the best drivers in F1. Instead, he's a curate's egg of a driver.
