Why Grosjean's oval commitment shows he's serious about IndyCar

One of motorsport’s worst-kept secrets now out in the open, and Romain Grosjean has been confirmed as an Andretti Autosport IndyCar driver in 2022. It marks a remarkable turnaround after the abrupt end to his Formula 1 career, and is a firm indication of his commitment to challenge for the IndyCar Series title  

Romain Grosjean probably won’t win IndyCar’s Rookie of the Year title this season, as Penske’s Scott McLaughlin leads the way going into this weekend's final round at Long Beach. And, although he admires the styling of the trophy, Grosjean claims he’s not too bothered.

For a start he’s happy to be alive and racing, plus he’s scored two more podium finishes than the Kiwi (despite skipping the big oval races, the Texas double-header and the Indianapolis 500) while running for Dale Coyne's underdog team. He also has a 2022 Andretti Autosport deal in his back pocket, so they can battle on more even terms in future for an even bigger prize.
