Romain Grosjean is ready to help Lotus team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in the Formula 1 World Championship if the situation arises.
The Finn is third in the standings with six races to go, although he is already 45 points behind Fernando Alonso, having been the only driver in the top seven who is yet to win a race.
Grosjean is over 100 points off the championship lead and says it is only logical to do all he can to help Raikkonen.
“Until Spa we had fair racing, but from now on it’s logical,” said Grosjean.
“Kimi is fighting in front of the championship and I don’t have many hopes in terms of position. I could be seventh if I score good points, but Kimi is still at the front.
“So yes, I would let him by every time we need and we know that it will be fair play from race one next year again. It’s not being number one or two, it’s about being intelligent and think about the team.”
