Images apparently showing the Lotus E21 have leaked ahead of its launch in two hours’ time:

Added more red but at least it’s going to be easy to know which driver is which with the names on the top!
Why they’d show Grosjean in front of Raikonnen’s car we’ll never know.
Wow the red looks horrible, too many sponsors just scattered everywhere. Not a good look in my opinion.
At first glance, they have introduced the tunnel/Coanda exhaust (which I did not expect, I thought they would retain the power exhaust) and the back looks tighter.
Aesthetically: wasn’t the entire purpose of the original JPS livery in the 1970s that all sponsor names would be featured in gold against a black background? High treason I would call this :P
I’m probably being silly here but who is the other guy besides Grosjean and Boullier? Is it Valsecchi?
I never really like cars carrying over the same livery each yeah as everything stays the same. Change is interesting so I welcome the red. (Reading that back to myself, its ironic that im a Ferrari supporter :S )
Please no more stepped noses, they are ugly.
@JPedroCQF1 Thank you! I didn’t think it was Valsecchi but i know he’s been linked with the reserve role there.
I hate these leaks, if I’m honest. Ruins all the suspense and the fun from getting everyone’s reactions all at the same time.
Disappointed with this leak also. As a Lotus fan, I was all excited to wait until 7pm for the launch. Not going to bother now.
