Oh I get it. Proton Lotus Nissan Renault like BMW Fiat Scuderia Ferrari.
Joking aside, at least the current team is based in Norfolk. It’s not that I would object to a the team base shifting to Oxfordshire it’s just that using the Lotus name as effectively the name of a paint job that can be slapped on any car doesn’t sit well. Like ogamii says above – you can’t buy heritage.
As a VR fan this is difficult to say but I’d rather the Mike and Tony show continued.
