GP2 championship leader Romain Grosjean claims he is not thinking about sealing the title when the series resumes at Spa later this month.The DAMS driver heads into the summer break with a commanding 25-point lead over Giedo van der Garde with just two race weekends remaining in the season.However, he insists that he will head to Belgium more interested in adding to his solitary pole position this season rather than thinking about the crown."We have a good lead in the standings but nothing is done," said Grosjean. "We want pole position at Spa because we only have one this season."That is what I want to take, and then we will see in the race. We want to keep scoring points then see where we stand."Grosjean added that he and DAMS are determined to keep improving to the end of the year, rather than backing off to cruise to the championship. However, he pointed out that he would be more careful when racing drivers who are out of title contention, as was the case in the closing laps against Esteban Gutierrez on Sunday."The idea is to keep improving," he said. "We are doing a great job but we can still improve in some areas."But we have to take care of Giedo, plus Charles [Pic] and Jules [Bianchi] behind us. We have to adapt. I don't want to risk anything if I am already in front of them."I knew Esteban does not have to worry about points, so I decided that if he went for the move I was not closing the door."
