BREAKING NEWS – REJECTED PEACOCK AND DOWNTON JOIN LOTUS
Having been unceremoniously ousted from McLaren just this morning Oli Peacock and Bradley Downton have announced they will join the Lotus Formula One team for the upcoming season. It took just hours for the pair to find a new team and are looking forward to working with the team, Tony Fernandes and test driver Heikki Kovalainen.
Downton said ‘It’s great to be moving to a team with such a famous reputation as Lotus. Tony is a great boss because he really knows what he wants and Heikki makes an excellent test driver because he’s already put the car through it’s paces and has some idea’s for improvements.’
He later added, ‘I am also pleased to once again be working with Oli. We made a good team last year and hope to once again claim the Constructors title, although John and Moussa are going to be difficult to beat in the McLarens.’
When asked about his departure from McLaren, Downton refused to comment but did say, ‘Now, I am a Lotus driver, and that is the what is happening. Besides, i think the green and yellow suits me better than silver’ he jokingly finished.
Peacock was unavailable for comment while it was also confirmed today that Ben Moody has signed a contract extension with Williams.
