  1. Lotus continue their Grand Prix battle In its 50th year of hosting the sport, Britain’s Silverstone Circuit welcomed the 9th round of the 2014 Grand Prix Championship today, and despite the warm support from British fans for our black and gold team, it was another thorny race for Lotus. The race weekend had not started well with Pastor Maldonado failing to qualify after he ran out of fuel. This resulted in him starting at the back of the grid, in P20. Romain fared slightly better beginning the race from P14. A nasty accident by former Lotus F1® Team Driver, Kimi Räikkonen, the
  2. Adrian Hall benefitted from a penalty for main rival Chris Randall in the second round of the 2014 Lotus Cup UK championship at Silverstone this weekend (26 April). The pair had disputed both the race lead and Open class honours throughout a race disrupted by two safety car interventions, and it was a yellow flag infringement that settled the result, after Randall had looked to have asserted his authority over the poleman during a frantic dash for the chequered flag. Hall had taken the race lead from Randall before the first safety car, with round one winner and Exige class pacesetter A
  3. Nico Prost completed his second day of testing in the E21 as the third fastest driver to conclude the 2013 Silverstone Young Driver Test. Completing 83 laps, Nico ran through a programme of setup work and aerodynamic assessments, in addition to evaluating a new exhaust. Fast Facts: Track: Silverstone, England, 5.9km Chassis: E21-03 Weather: Sunny, ambient 20-26°C, track 29-42°C Programme: Setup work, assessment of new aero and exhaust components Laps Completed: 83 Classification: P3, 1:33.256 Interruptions: None What’s Next? Lotus F1 Team heads to Budapest for the Hungarian Grand Pri
  4. Davide Valsecchi completed the second day of running at the Silverstone Young Driver Test as the third-fastest driver of the day. After completing 91 laps, Davide recorded the fourth-fastest time overall due to Daniel Ricciardo setting lap times in two different cars. Davide ran through a programme of aerodynamic assessments including analysis work on the team’s rear wing ‘Device’. Nico Prost returns to the car on Friday in a change to the original programme – which had seen Kimi Räikkönen set to take the wheel – made following clarification of FIA rules. Fast Facts: Track: Silverstone, Eng
  5. Nico Prost completed the first day of running at the Silverstone Young Driver Test by setting the eighth fastest time of the day in the team’s E21. Nico ran through a programme of aerodynamic assessments over the course of a glorious day of sunshine at the Northamptonshire circuit. Davide Valsecchi will take over tomorrow with Nico returning to the car on Friday in a change to the original programme – which had seen Kimi Räikkönen set to take the wheel – made following clarification of FIA rules stipulating that race drivers would be unable to test anything other than tyres. Fast Facts: Tra
  6. Kimi Räikkönen set a new record for consecutive Grand Prix points placings [25] by taking fifth position in an eventful British Grand Prix at Silverstone today. The Finn ran as high as second place in a race punctuated by safety car periods and characterised by an unusual amount of tyre failures. Romain Grosjean had a more difficult race, from which he retired at the end due to a front wing failure. Kimi leaves Silverstone third in the Drivers’ Championship while the team remains fourth in the Constructors’ Championship. Kimi started from P8 with a used set of medium tyres, changin
  7. Romain Grosjean will start from eighth on the grid and Kimi Räikkönen right behind him in ninth after today’s qualifying for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. After a promising Q1 session where the cars finished P3 and P4, Q2 and Q3 proved to be more difficult at the team’s local circuit. Kimi ran with a Device-equipped E21, whilst Romain ran with a new slimline bodywork package. Kimi Räikkönen, E21-03. Q: P9, 1:30.962. FP3: P8, 1:32.459 “It was a close qualifying session between both of the team’s cars so I think we both got pretty much all there was from the car today. It’s not id
  8. Romain Grosjean ended the first day of practice for the British Grand Prix with the ninth fastest time, with team-mate Kimi Räikkönen posting a Friday 13th in what was a characteristically wet start to the weekend at Silverstone. The team completed a solitary installation lap with Romain – and no running at all with Kimi – during the morning session due to an inclement wet track, resulting in all meaningful track time taking place in the drying afternoon session. Pirelli’s wet and intermediate tyres were used today in addition to the hard, medium and developmental dry tyres. Technical progr
  9. 2013 Lotus Cup UK - 2nd Round Race Report A thrilling battle for the lead of the second round of the 2013 Lotus Cup UK Championship was fought between the Evora of Andrew Bentley and Marcus Jewell’s 2-Eleven, with the former taking the honours on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. The pair fought from the very first lap, along with Adrian Hall, until he made the first of a series of unscheduled pitstops. The lead changed several times in the closing laps, and the margin of victory was little more than a second after an hour of racing. Simon Deacon completed the podium, finishing ahead of Ro

After some test days, the new sports car, which was built in accordance with the latest 2014 regulations, has impressed with its streamlined design and competitive lap times. Kevin Weeda and Vitantonio Liuzzi w
  14. Holland's Nigel Melker scored a podium finish on his Lotus debut at Silverstone at the weekend during Round 6 of the World Series by Renault championship. The first qualifying session was run in wet conditions, and season-long Lotus racer Marco Sorensen lined up for the Race 1 grid in ninth place with Melker down in 14th. Come the race, though, it was clear that the qualifying times were not representative of the Czech team's speed despite the changeable weather conditions. On Lap 2, though, bad luck struck Sorensen and he crashed out at Luffield along with several other cars due to

  20. Lotus is looking forward to its home race, the 6 Hours of Silverstone. After a two-month break, the cars will be back in action for the fourth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Thankfully qualifying was held i
  22.

  23. Lotus finish British Grand Prix fifth and sixth Lotus showed strong pace once again during the team’s home race at Silverstone, but difficulties on Saturday ultimately kept them off the podium. While the sun came out on Sunday, Friday and Saturday’s running was wet and slippery. During qualifying, Romain Grosjean set the fifth fastest Q2 time but then beached his Lotus E20 in the gravel, meaning he was unable to compete in Q3. He started the grand prix ninth, benefiting from Nico Hulkenberg’s five place gearbox-change penalty. Kimi was able to run in Q3 despite having no KERS for the enti
  24. Once again, Lotus GP put a car on the podium of the GP3 Series. Conor Daly climbed on the second step of the podium of race 2 in Silverstone. The race took place on a drying track and the slicks tyres were the best possible choice. Daniel Abt and Aaro Vainio, who started the race in rain tyres, had to come to the pits to change to slicks tyres but then both retire after going out of the track.
  25. Esteban Gutierrez scored the points of the 4th place today in the second race of the GP2 Series in Silverstone. His teammate, James Calado, drove a strong race but ultimately finished out of the track while fighting with another driver. The track was dry during the whole race. Next races will be in Hockenheim in two weeks.
