Romain Grosjean will soon be a father, after his new wife Marion Jolles – who met Grosjean whilst a Formula 1 television reporter – was spotted apparently pregnant, the French Lotus driver confirmed the news.

He said their baby is due in the summer.

“We are absolutely delighted,” said the 26-year-old.

But according to Swiss journalist Roger Benoit, of the Blick newspaper, Lotus is apparently “not very happy about it, because (the team thinks) he should concentrate on the sport”.

Meanwhile, former Marussia driver Timo Glock’s newly born first child – a son borne by his partner Isabell – has been named Mika.
