For 2012, Lotus Renault F1 will have two new drivers.  Fresh from his winning the 2011 GP2 Championship, Romain Grosjean will take the second seat joining Kimi Raikkonen who makes his return to F1 after straying into rallying.

Grosjean will join the 2010 GP2 champion Pastor Maldonado on the grid.  Maldonado will remain at Williams for 2012.
