Lotus launch new LOTUS F1 JUNIOR TEAM for 2013

Recommended Posts


Lotus select seven junior team drivers
15 Feb 2013

Lotus have announced the roster of drivers for their newly launched Lotus F1 Junior Team. The lucky seven will be supported by the team in all areas of driving skills, physical fitness, health and
nutrition, social and mental development, business ethics and principals, as well as PR training.

They will spend the 2013 season contesting a variety of motorsport championships, ranging from
the World Series by Renault Formula Renault 3.5 Series through the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 to KF category karting.

“Lotus F1 Junior Team takes our previous i-Race Professional young driver academy and builds on it to be more closely aligned with the Formula One team and all the benefits brought by this association,” said team principal Eric Boullier. “We have announced seven highly-talented drivers, many of whom will be competing against their fellow team mates from the programme.

“We’re offering an in-depth and highly-beneficial training regime which should encourage these drivers to develop and perform at their very best. Motorsport can be very daunting for young
drivers, particularly everything that occurs away from the track, so we hope to give our drivers the very best preparation possible for their
future careers.”

The drivers selected are:
Marco Sorensen, 22, Denmark
(Formula Renault 3.5 with Lotus World Series Team)
Marlon Stockinger, 21, Philippines
(Formula Renault 3.5 with Lotus World Series Team)
Alex Fontana, 20, Switzerland
(GP3 with Jenzer Motorsport)
Oscar Tunjo,17, Colombia
(Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 with Kaufmann Racing)
Esteban Ocon, 16, France
(Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 with ART Junior Team)
Alexander Albon, 16, Thailand
(Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 - team TBA)
Dorian Boccolacci, 14, France
(Go Kart International KF category with Energy Corse)
