Lotus driver Romain Grosjean is looking for a podium finish at next weekend's United States Grand Prix in Austin.

The Frenchman finished fourth in Abu Dhabi, continuing his recent run of impressive results, but told reporters that he was disappointed not to earn a top-three place and expects a strong showing from his team in Texas.

He said: "It's a shame we couldn't make it four podiums in a row, but when you remember the issues we had in FP2 and qualifying in Abu Dhabi I think to come away with fourth place is a decent result.

"This year we have all the data from last time, we're expecting warmer temperatures and I know both the team and myself are working really well together to extract strong performance from the car."

Grosjean's recent form has seen him climb to seventh in the drivers' standings.
