Monza (Italy), Sep 5 (IANS) Lotus reserve driver Jerome d’Ambrosio will replace the suspended Romain Grosjean in Sunday’s Formula One Italian Grand Prix here.

The 26-year-old Belgian gets his chance after Grosjean was banned for his reckless start in last Sunday’s Belgian round.

Grosjean’s wrongdoing provoked an accident that saw Lewis Hamilton and series leader Fernando Alonso’s races end at the first corner.

D’Ambrosio drove for F1 minnows Virgin (now Marussia) in 2011.
