2011 F1 season

Fairuz Fauzy, Lotus, 2010

Former Lotus test driver Fairuz Fauzy has joined Renault as the team’s reserve driver for 2011.

Fauzy drove for Lotus in five practice sessions in 2010.

The Malaysian driver has also become the first member of the LRGP Academy, the team’s young driver programme. Renault says further drivers will join the team during 2011.

Fauzy said he hopes the deal will lead to his first opportunity to race in F1:

I want to thank Lotus Renault GP for giving me this opportunity. It?s a real honour to be part of a top team that has achieved so much in the sport and it?s something any driver dreams about.
