Excellent news and a top bloke. Hope he is allowed to race at the Indian GP. Fantastic to see a small team picking people on tallent over budget and I hope it pays off big time this year.

So Lotus now have SIX drivers on their books?? I can only assume Razia, Valsecchi and Teixeira are bringing in a lot of sponsorship money, and in the event one of the regular drivers can't start a race, they'll be outbidding each other for the chance to complete in a race.

Chandhok's role will most likely be confined to winter testing.
