    Congrats to Renault on their podium! It may help them land a significant sponsor! Congrats to Team Lotus on their most significant race yet! Heikki was close to the Toro Rosos all race long the car doesn't have the speed yet but they are getting there! If they get kers like all the established teams they will for sure fight the midpack!
  2. Bibs I mean no offense but this poll is a bit bogus? No!

    The question being for the Enstone team what does Lotus engineering have to offer! They have a top of the line super computer, more than enough engineers to get any job done! Really what can Lotus contribute that the team could not do by itself!
  4. Well it appears that eventhough the case may make it difficult for the teams to go after sponsor! It appears that Team Lotus by Tony was able to get DELL to up their supplying deal to a full partnership! Good news for the Norfolk team!
  5. So I guess Lotus new core target is watching that show! Ok I have to say great product placement but I dread to see the number of Lotuses in the ditch because the dick in it was driving like a cock!

    Well, when it comes to the 'bling' some in the new management seem to know everything about it! Now, when it comes to good taste well that is open to...

    So we all agree now there is a Team Lotus running Lotuses and not doing to good just right now but I'm confident with a soon to come change in luck! And we have a Renault Team racing Renaults with money given by Group Lotus PLC on behalf of Proton Berhad! Regardless of the sponsorship these cars should be referred to as Renaults!
  9. 20m GBP or USD per year over a 5 year period that is still a lot of money!
  10. Thinking about it this thing is just too timely! Maybe I'm just paranoid or maybe TF doesn't own a low cost airline for no good reason! Pay up when you can cash in or renegotiate! Still, I want to know more about this!
  11. Hum! Is it me or somebody at Lotus HQ got the Evora Carbon out of the basement stuck the new 'corporate nose' on it and told Mansory to say it was their big idea! I like it regardless and if Cosworth could play with the Evora S a bit and transform it into a Evora SC (Supercharged by Cosworth) I would probably wet my pants thinking about it! Calling Mansory wasn't really necessary IMO as their reputation as a car tuner is dubious at best! But again why not!
  12. Yup Tony paid to get the name in due form from rightful owner! Now I guess Tony could have a thorough look at Group Lotus communication of late and start taking action! I want to see this thing settled in court not behind closed doors now! It's a bit too important cause it could lead to a lot more actions of the kind in the next few years!
  13. Ok Bahrain not happening means Melbourne gets its first gp of the season back! But for FOM it means they lose TV money! For the broadcasters it means potential loss of revenue! Personally I won't miss Bahrain but I'm craving for a Grand Prix!
  14. Ok don't mean to rain on a Lotus Parade but the fact that an ART GP driver wins a race is a non event! It's pretty much life as it was always supposed to be in GP2! Congratulations to the team! Besides helping in the development of Jules Bianchi, a Ferrari test driver is just completely beyond me!

    Jerez Testing

    Ok so I think it's safe to assume that Nick Heidfeld will be Petrov's teammate for the better part of the season! Interesting to see that Team Lotus is in thick the pack by lapping in 1'21.7 and still having to iron quite a few problems with the car! This should be a great season!

    Heidfeld is a more experience driver! He can get Renault closer to podiums than Senna!
  17. It's now official Lotus JetAlliance is go for Le Mans!

It's pretty much battle royale in la Sarthe Except for the logical absence of Jaguar XKR RSR,- these guys just burnt themeselves last year - all the big guns are here! I don't think the plateau has ever been more richer than this! Lotus JetAlliance is also commited to the full season in Intercontinental Le Mans Cup and will compete with Ferrari and BMW in the GTE pro category!
  18. I hope Robert will heal quickly! For the Renault team I think they can call it a day! Without him they don't really stand a chance of winning a GP! The alternatives would be Liuzzi, Heidfeld which are good drivers but not of Kubica's level! Besides logically they should promote one of their reserve driver! Senna failed to impress me last year! Grosjean did not do that poorly but he will fail to attract sponsorship! Worse than that the team is now without a leader!
  19. It looks like one fast Team Lotus F1 car! Therefore I like it! As expected we lost Maxis and Proton as sponsor! Interestingly the car stills sports '1Malaysia' markings ! LR8 is now known as EQ8! Overall the livery is a very nice effort compared to the Lotus sponsored car! Can't wait for them to get the kers so that they can compete with the best of them!
  20. Ok so the exhaust will be copied by all teams if it works! Now let's talk money shall we! Lotus, Lada, Renault are now all involved in one team! Wow this is good marketing! GenII is now appearing on the sidepods! After begging for their 'own' money last year they decided to inject more in their team this year! Or did they put a sticker that is clearly saying space for rent !? Gone are HP, Diac, Snoras Bank...!!! Do they really need four test driver! Three of which will not touch the car at all! Or did they recruit Grosjean, Fauzy, Senna and Tong to put pressure on Petrov! Let's be logical for a sec the only drivers who could hope for a race seat are Fauzy thanks to his Proton connection and Senna thanks to the Telcel money he must be bringing! Really I'd like to believe that this team has a shot in the championship but really!
