Lotus should get some points and Virgin should get 11ths and 12ths finishes. I will be more disappointed with Lotus if they don’t score any points than Virgin if they don’t get any low teen finishes.
Lotus should be getting points in dry races, with the package there looking at getting, and the engine, gearbox etc. they should be around the STR pace, which means they’ll be quick in some places, and back to the back in others.
HRT, if they remain in there current predicament, wont see out the season.
My guess, they’ll be quicker in the first 4 races than in early Europe (Spain etc.), first points maybe Budapest/Spa way. Or Korea, and it will basically be a new track again, well the surface and conditions, as well as India.
