Romain Grosjean believes his first win in Formula One will come this season.

The 27-year-old Swiss-born French driver has been through a lot during his relatively short Formula One career.

He made his debut in Formula One at the 2009 European Grand Prix at the Valencia Street Circuit. He went on to finish 15th.

But while then team-mate Fernando Alonso was four points paying finishes including a podium in Singapore, Grosjean’s best finish was a 13th place in Brazil.

His performances didn’t prove to be enough to earn his a new contract and in 2010 he moved into sportscar racing and raced in the GP2 Series.

In 2011 as well as becoming test driver for the Lotus Renault team he also won the GP2 Series with five race victories.

That was enough to win a seat back in Formula One alongside current team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in 2012.

It has been far from plain sailing since his return to Formula One however, with a very notable low point of being suspended for the Italian Grand Prix last season.

But Grosjean believes he is improving and two podiums already this season at least show an indication of that.

The next step of course is a race victory something that Grosjean already has his sights on.

?We proved in Germany and Hungary that we can compete right at the front of the grid and I think if we can continue to improve at the same rate we will be looking pretty good for the remaining nine races,? Grosjean told Lotus’s official website as quoted by formula1.com.

?I?m feeling more and more comfortable in the car every time I drive it which is certainly a good sign looking forwards.

?After our performance in the last few races, I honestly believe my first win is now just around the corner.?
