Of course they are going to be slow at the start. The story will be how they develop over the season.

Yes...but really its the work of multiple seasons. Even Red Bull took over a midfield team, had a good budget and good staff.....even then they weren't winning for a little while. These guys have it tougher.

Im not talking about winning. That will never happen most probably Laughing I doubt they will be around long enough.

Just to get among the midfleid will be an achievement in it self.

Oh dear MONSTAR, I'll be your team mate. (like it or not). Razz

In Heikki's interview in Fin paper Turun Sanomat.
Heikki was saying at he got free hands to develope Lotus for it's best performance.
He even get well paid for it.
Heikki did great job to get Renault back on to road, when he was driving there
in his first year. Heikki is extremely keen, enthusiastic and full on stamina.
He is happy to have Jarno with him, he is fast and good driver very enthusiastic
and keen to get started.
What I understood of the interview at they dont know at who is the
No:1 driver in a team. Lotus is waiting to see at who to support more, later.

I can just wish best for the both driver's.
Let the best man get the podium first.

Very Happy Very Happy

Lotus are one of the most open teams in F1. During testing Mike Gasgoyne kept tweeting what they were doing with the car and what they are going to do in the next run. Tony Fernandes keep tweeting regularly about the team and also replies to any messages. Heikki admitted that his crash was his mistake during testing. I wish more teams are open like these guys.

The only cars from the new comers to finish the race yesterday. It was really a job well done, given that they started much later than the other new teams. Well done Lotus and well done Mark Gasgoyne.

Lotus have been saying from the beginning that they sacrificed Aero performance for reliability. Seems like their gamble paid off. They are going to have some major aero updates by Spain which they are hoping will bring improvements upto 2 seconds. So hopefully they will get better by then.

Lotus shows that new teams can mean business
The car was designed conservatively, with a 20% margin on cooling and a fairly basic aerodynamic package. For Spain there will be a major development step, shrink wrapping the bodywork more closely and refining the aerodynamics. This will give them a step which could be measured at around a second, rather than in tenths.

I think if they had raced on the old circuit, they would have been down by more than 2 laps. That is also one of the main reasons for the changes to the track.

Great article confirming what i have been saying for the past few weeks. Lotus have been making great use of Twitter to get closer to the fans :

its was a bit of sad day. Even though Lotus is actually the home team, but people are celebrating merc gp petronas more. Even the news was showing more of merc gp petronas than lotus.

I was expecting tony would come up with something. But nothing so far.

Lotus eyes one second boost from Spain GP upgrade

"The Barcelona package has been in the wind tunnel for six months"

Monday 26 April 2010 - 09h35, by GMM

If the new team’s predictions are right, Lotus is set to take a big step forward at the Spanish grand prix next weekend.

"We are hoping for a time saving of more than a second (per lap)," Heikki Kovalainen told Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport.

The Finnish driver, however, acknowledged that most other teams will also field quicker cars at Barcelona, the first European race of the season and usually the annual scene of major developments.

"But we might have more room (for improvement) than our competitors," added Kovalainen, referring to the car’s conservative cooling solution, the basic double diffuser and the steel suspension uprights fielded so far this season.

Among F1’s three new teams, the pace of the Lotus and Virgin cars has been close so far. Virgin is also planning an upgrade for Barcelona, including its famous bigger fuel tank.

Said Lotus’ technical boss Mike Gascoyne: "The Barcelona package has been in the wind tunnel for six months." The rear is narrower, the sidepod entries more extreme, the wheelbase longer.

"It will be at least a second faster," he confirmed.

Team boss Tony Fernandes said he is pushing Lotus to set high targets.

"You’ve got to benchmark yourself against the best, otherwise don’t bother being in it," he told the Malaysian newspaper The Star.

Good news. They starting to create a racy car, rather than one that just finishes the race.

Heard on the local news last nite (or the nite before), Lotus is putting Fairuz to the race in Silverstone. In fact, he will get 3 more races this season.

Is he going to race ? I doubt that. I think he will only be testing on Friday Practise 1, similar to what Force India are doing.

I think its probably save to say that, Lotus will be further away from the other 2 not-so-new team. In fact, I hope they can challenge FI.
