Confidence required in Monaco – Grosjean

Lotus driver Romain Grosjean says having confidence is key to achieving a strong weekend at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Grosjean, who collected Lotus’s first points of 2014 in Spain last weekend, has never finished in Monaco after crashing out of the races in 2012 and 2013.
