lotus cars is actually has been bankruptcy and need to close the factory..it is also not the true Lotus cars. Boullier still not understand that there are separate entity between team lotus and lotus cars. this because the purpose for Tony Fernandes is to Bring back the Lotus name and start from the back and he want to bring the true team lotus racing back to f1 than this nowadays f1 team just racing on the money. So let watch the Team lotus Defeat the Lotus Renault GP team for year 2011. Boullier just didn't know anything about Team Lotus history. he is just bullshit.

What a t**t!! So basically what he is trying to say is Lotus cars (Proton) should claim to be connected to "Classic Team Lotus".
At least Fernandez has been respectful to the history, spoken to the Chapman family, and unlike most F1 teams has consulted the public for their thoughts.

Tony Fernandes is just trying to create a new chapter within the Team Lotus history.

So what, Boullier is tryin to say that Proton is the true legacy and successor to what Colin Chapman built?

Take note Boullier, NO ONE is going to be able to continue what Chapman built, because Lotus died when Chapman passed.

But if I had to pick between Tony and Proton to continue the story, I'd pick Tony. True, down to earth, nice guy. And I'm sure Clive Chapman agrees with me!

Well said Mr Boullier.
@almaaa give it up. TF if he does run as Team Lotus will mean nothing to the legacy. No connection. No nothing.
Actually, what Tony Fernandes is doing is a blo**dy insult to Colin Chapman!!!
