Glad Heikki's found another drive - he should do better out of the high-pressure, big expectation environment of McLaren. No one will really be expecting anything of him now, so with the pressure off he will drive much better than recently, and could surprise a few people if the car is good. And another year of the Trulli train!!! :)

a real great driver line up for a new team... two potential race winning drivers and enough experience. Im glad they didn go for drivers who cud sponsor their way thru wid lots of money. Trulli's is gnna kick some ass again.. that man has some potential. put fisichella in a ferrari.. he wasn ****, u put heikki in mclaren.. he wasnt any good either. You put trulli in a toyota against glock, ralf or kobayashi, he benchmarked that cars performance for his team mates

trulli are good on Saturday. so lotus probably want him so they knew where they really are, with the vast experience of trulli, he can help Lotus on car development, something that Lotus really need to do as a new team.

for Kovalainen, he is treated as a young driver and have a great potential for the future. so it could be that they want him as main driver when they already put themselves among established team.

anyway, this team does not take any pay drivers like everyone thought it would. hope they got the value for their money.
