Lotus was on track at the first day of the 6 Hours of Bahrain.


The circuit was very dirty in the first practice session because a lot of desert sand was blown onto the track. In the second session at night, all Lotus drivers completed the mandatory five laps that are necessary to be eligible for the race.


It was a good day for Lotus and the team could get a lot of data in preparation for the race.


Unfortunately, Mirco Schultis is not able to participate in the 6 Hours of Bahrain due to illness. Everybody in the team wishes him a speedy recovery and is looking forward to seeing him back in the car at Fuji.


Luca Moro, Race driver #31:

“I enjoyed being in the Lotus LMP2 car today in Bahrain. The track was very dirty and dusty because of the sand that is coming from the desert. It was tricky to drive but we fulfilled our program and completed the mandatory five laps at night, so we are eligible for the race. It is a shame that Mirco Schultis is not here this weekend, so it will be Thomas Holzer and me in the car. Best wishes to Mirco and I hope that he is getting better soon.”


James Rossiter, Race driver #32:

“Today we did some long runs and learnt a lot about the tyres. We will analyze the data and work on the strategy for the race. There is still room for improvement tomorrow and we will work hard to have a good result.”
