This utterly befuddled me when I saw it on Autosport this morning. Lotus seem to be hell-bent on confusing every motorsport fan going at the moment.
I don’t see how they could have the Lotus branded KV team not running a Lotus engine when others are. It doesn’t reflect well. So indeed, do they stop their partnership with KV and start one with a Lotus-engined team? Does Taku head to a Honda-engined team? Do Lotus go all out and set up a team of their own?
Much as I feel they’ve down a fair amount of harm to their image over the past year, it would be cool to see Lotus have similar teams in F1 and IndyCar, maybe using the black and gold livery, and extending it to their works efforts in the lower GT classes.
