Unfortunately everything seems to be going against them in the fight to be Lotus. Still as far as I’m concerned as long as Fernandes holds the rights to the Team Lotus name, he is a winner because theh other team cannot be team Lotus..
I no longer care what the names of these two teams are, implications to the past etc. Group Lotus are clearly nothing to do with Chapmans team Lotus, their claiming of history is disgusting and Danny Bahar is just vile. BUT WHO CARES THEY’RE JUST A SPONSER.
Team Lotus, obviously isn’t team lotus, doesn’t have the support of the chapmans family, but then again, Chapmans most likley have there own intrests at heart, these people arn’t angels. Fernandes seems a nice guy but no one makes billions without cunning in him, then again no one suceeds in F1 without cunning either. Don’t care.
One teams a former front runner, apparently coming back to the fore in exciting fashion with an enourmous talent behind the wheel. The others a vibrant and fresh new team that could grow and grow, who cares what the sods in PR do to try and grab our affections. Nothing they do has much to do with why people support a team in the first place. None of these people fighting over history, brand etc are a driver, a technician, a team manager or an engineer. Really they’VE got nothing to do with why people watch F1 IN THE FIRST PLACE,that would be the racing. So what i’m going to do, is enjoy both teams contributions on track, be they spectacular or mundane, an ignore the rest as best I can.
Hope Renault challenge for wins, (or preferably get podiums behind McLaren) hope Lotus progress to the pointed mid-feild because successful new blood is good for F1. All the rest is so much money generating so much noise.
Also Sepangs an awesome track, what’ve you been drinking?
Cheers Steve. And on New Years Day as well, :) :) everyone’s got a little rant in em’ just waiting to pop out.
Also RIISE, the weather makes Sepang more exciting but on dry days it’s a very fast challenging track with clear overtaking oppourtunities, who wants Magny-Cour? It’s not even the best circuit in France.
