Formula 1 could be set for a dramatic shake-up as the race to secure engine deals for the future hots up. Honda’s return to Formula 1 , Mercedes’ push to find another customer, plus Renault’s desire to supply fewer teams , has opened the way for plenty of changes over the next few years. There is now even the prospect of a renewal of some iconic F1 partnerships from the past, with both Lotus and Williams leading contenders to land Honda deals

Pirelli says it will help bring back boring processions to Formula 1 if that is what teams and fans want. In the wake of a fresh debate about the impact the tyres are having on the sport – and Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz claiming F1 “has nothing to do with racing anymore” – Pirelli has reiterated it is only doing what it has been asked to
May 13th, 2013
Lotus thinks it would be unfair if Pirelli makes changes to the tyres later this season just because some teams are struggling to make the rubber last. After a number of outfits were forced to make four-stops during the Spanish Grand Prix due to the high degradation, Pirelli has conceded that it may have to tweak its tyres to limit a repeat in the future. Such changes could hamper the Lotus outfit, which appears perfectly suited to the high degrading rubber with its E21

April 21st, 2013
Paul di Resta refused to be too downbeat despite being denied what would have been his first Formula 1 podium just six laps from the finish of the Bahrain Grand Prix. The Briton’s two-stop strategy, married to a third-row starting berth, meant he was a permanent fixture at the front of the race, even leading for three laps.

April 19th, 2013

Kimi Raikkonen edged out the Red Bulls for the fastest time in second Friday practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix at Sakhir. Raikkonen’s pacesetting lap of 1m34.154s in his Lotus came just after the halfway point. It could have been faster still, as the Finn ran wide at the final corner on the way to the flag
April 13th, 2013

March 27th, 2013
Romain Grosjean’s efforts to become a more consistent and focused Formula 1 driver are paying off, according to his Lotus team boss Eric Boullier. Grosjean’s 2012 campaign was littered with accidents as he developed a particular reputation for first-lap tangles, and the team hesitated over re-signing him for this season. But the Frenchman has made a trouble-free start to 2013, finishing 10th in Australia despite a car issue, and then beating his Melbourne-winning team-mate Kimi Raikkonen to sixth in Malaysia

For Round Seven of the Lotus Classic Teams Championship the field remained in Belgium, moving from the classic Spa circuit to the confines of Circuit Zolder. Most famous as the venue where the legendary Gilles Villeneuve lost his life, this circuit represents a huge contrast to the week before. With three tight chicanes and a hairpin, the average speed is a lot lower than at Spa and the chicanes’ curbs can easily cause a car to spin, so incidents are common around this tricky and technical track. Once again Nicklas Lindqvist took it all in stride, scoring heavily and extending his championship lead but, in his wake, the battle for second looks to be getting more intense week on week. Ferrari’s Gernot Fritsche once again failed to score more than [...]
