New Lotus Motorhome

Apr.12 (GMM) Nico Rosberg’s girlfriend is designing the interior of the new Lotus motor home.

Vivian Sibold, who is the 24-year-old Mercedes driver’s long-time partner, studied interior design in New York and Milan and is now establishing her own business.

They live together in Monaco, and spent the weekend of the Malaysian grand prix together, as Sibold – whose family has been friends with the Rosberg family for years – is working on three-storey penthouses in Kuala Lumpur.

Another of her projects is the paddock presence of the new Lotus team, which will debut ahead of the European season next month.

“I’ve seen the plans and they’re very cool. It will be the new party-central of formula one,” Rosberg told Bild am Sonntag.

I can't wait to see it especially now that Redbull Energy station is such a serious place and has given the boot to the formula unas and the crazy parties!

Nice start... everything a 'newbie' team needs without being OTT. Cars first, plush motorhomes definitely second.

Now you see 'em... now you don't!

Weird, they last 5 minutes then disappear, it's like mission impossible!

I've hosted these myself...

This is obviously the car and kit transporter, not that different to other teams. I'm looking forward to seeing the paddock setup!

Looking clean and pro! Now can we have a pick at the hospitality unit!?

Does anyone have pics of the inside of the factory, RTN has been refitted during the first four GPs and I'd like to have a look at what it's like now?

This is obviously the car and kit transporter

I'm not so sure but am happy to be corrected on this one.

F1 car transporters do not generally have full length high level office/conference facilities or slide up roofs. They sometimes have dressing/changing facilities and /or mini machine/work shops at the front of the trailer (difficult to tell without seeing the other side of the trailer). The all have full drop down rear faces which doubles as a lift to get cars to the lower and upper decks. It does not look to be possible with the one shown in the pictures. The cars are almost as wide as the transporters so it doesn't look like there would be enough room in the upper deck after the roof lift mechanism was installed.

Of course it may be that with the changes in testing allowances, banning of 'T' cars etc that they only need a lower deck and this is one of the new hybrids cleverly designed/specified by the ever inventive Mike Gascoyne.

Bibs, any clarification available ?

What i wanted to say was that this truck is the work horse, transporting kit and providing engineers space to work. It's not the elaborate truck that sits in the paddock to woo sponsors and spectators.

It is obvious that a car would not fit in this photographed truck but the car transporter wouldn't look that different in design.

I'm very keen to see what lotus have come up with to make their mark in the paddock.

Lotus will use a temporary unit and their motorhome will be unveiled in Valencia! Due to time constraint, cost or other reasons many teams have decided against unveilling their new or revamped paddock hospitality in Barcelona this week end: RBR, MGP, FI F1!

thanks to Sutton and GP Update for this shot of the temporary motorhome, looks like the old Jordan's!

I do like it! it's not huge, doesn't look ridiculously overpriced, seems functional and quite compact so easy to assemble and disassemble quickly! Can't wait to get pics from the inside!
