Grosjean looks for happy racing at Yas

His last appearance on the track ended in a disappointing 18th finish and proved to be his final race for Renault in Formula One.

ABU DHABI // Romain Grosjean does not have fond memories of his first appearance at Yas Marina Circuit. In the final race of a tumultuous season for Renault - which ended with Flavio Briatore, the managing director, and Pat Symonds, the engineering chief executive, resigning after the 'crash-gate' saga. Grosjean could only steer his R29 to a hugely disappointing 18th after 54 gruelling laps of the capital's track.

Little did he know, but it proved to be his final race for the team. Renault's quest for a fresh start resulted in Grosjean, who was only driving because Nelson Piquet Jr lost his drive, being cast aside for the 2010 season. Although it took time, opportunity finally knocked again for the 23-year old who will hope for a better experience at Yas Marina when the GT1 World Championships starts. "It's always good to be back on a race track," admitted Grosjean. "I drove the car for the first time [Wednesday] morning and it is working quite well."

The fact that GT cars are inferior in terms of speed to their F1 equivalents does not concern Grosjean. "It's too complicated to compare cars which are completely different," he said. "But the circuit is still the same, it's exactly the same track we used in Formula One. Left is left, right is right. There are four wheels and a steering wheel." His previous liaison with Yas will count for very little, he insisted. "I had an advantage for the first five testing laps but everyone is learning it now," he said. "It is not the most complicated track to learn."

The presence of Mika Salo and Karl Wendlinger, both fellow ex-F1 drivers, in the GT1 entry list will provide a fascinating subplot. Scarred by his brief flirtation with F1, Grosjean is content just to be driving competitively again. "[Renault] was in a very complicated situation and I don't like to go back too much to that story, but in the end I am very happy with the job I did and I think I should have my place in Formula One," he revealed, adding: "This year in a GT1 it is a completely new experience for me, but it's good experience for me for the future."

What drives subscription retailing?

Once the domain of newspaper home deliveries, subscription model retailing has combined with e-commerce to permeate myriad products and services.

The concept has grown tremendously around the world and is forecast to thrive further, according to UnivDatos Market Insights’ report on recent and predicted trends in the sector.

The global subscription e-commerce market was valued at $13.2 billion (Dh48.5bn) in 2018. It is forecast to touch $478.2bn in 2025, and include the entertainment, fitness, food, cosmetics, baby care and fashion sectors.

The report says subscription-based services currently constitute “a small trend within e-commerce”. The US hosts almost 70 per cent of recurring plan firms, including leaders Dollar Shave Club, Hello Fresh and Netflix. Walmart and Sephora are among longer established retailers entering the space.

UnivDatos cites younger and affluent urbanites as prime subscription targets, with women currently the largest share of end-users.

That’s expected to remain unchanged until 2025, when women will represent a $246.6bn market share, owing to increasing numbers of start-ups targeting women.

Personal care and beauty occupy the largest chunk of the worldwide subscription e-commerce market, with changing lifestyles, work schedules, customisation and convenience among the chief future drivers.

What drives subscription retailing?

Once the domain of newspaper home deliveries, subscription model retailing has combined with e-commerce to permeate myriad products and services.

The concept has grown tremendously around the world and is forecast to thrive further, according to UnivDatos Market Insights’ report on recent and predicted trends in the sector.

The global subscription e-commerce market was valued at $13.2 billion (Dh48.5bn) in 2018. It is forecast to touch $478.2bn in 2025, and include the entertainment, fitness, food, cosmetics, baby care and fashion sectors.

The report says subscription-based services currently constitute “a small trend within e-commerce”. The US hosts almost 70 per cent of recurring plan firms, including leaders Dollar Shave Club, Hello Fresh and Netflix. Walmart and Sephora are among longer established retailers entering the space.

UnivDatos cites younger and affluent urbanites as prime subscription targets, with women currently the largest share of end-users.

That’s expected to remain unchanged until 2025, when women will represent a $246.6bn market share, owing to increasing numbers of start-ups targeting women.
