"Lotus, who described the punishment as “severe” but decided not to appeal it,"
"Grosjean, who is the first driver to be banned from a race since Michael Schumacher in 1994, said: "I misjudged the gap to Lewis. I thought I was in front of him. It was a small mistake, but a big incident.
"I'm very sorry and I'm just glad nobody is hurt. That's the main thing."
Lotus team boss Eric Boullier added: "This is a severe penalty, but it's part of his learning curve.
"Part of the problem is that he wants to do well. He is somebody who is a perfectionist. He needs to understand he will deliver more if he doesn't put too much pressure on himself at the start of the race."
