Despite getting just one car home in Melbourne, Team Lotus insists that it was more encouraged by its race performance after a disappointing qualifying session.

When spin meets reallity,

What happened to beating Sauber Torro Rosso Force India Williams did Gascoyne not think these teams would improve

Last but one and DNF wait till HRT and Virgin get there ack together they will be last again.

It never fails to amuse me when a team spend the whole winter bigging themselves up, 'We're going to beat you all yeah!!!' Only to fall on their ar*s at the first race 'Erm, second from last isn't so bad is it?'

This 'Lotus' team are a joke, and not a very funny one either.

Expected better, Truli is blaming the tyres yet again, noticed Kovi outqualified him.

Virgin were poor....as for HRT, they should be turfed out of the championship, some GP2 teams could have done better.

I think these 3 back marker teams are in for a shock when they get to Turkey and join GP2 with some of the hot shot drivers/teams in GP2 I think that the 3 back marker teams will struggle to be quicker Egg on the face if Air Asia GP2 are quicker. I am sure Grosjean and Bianchi will be quicker
Gascoynes faith in his 2 drivers may wane, if it does who does he use to replace them Chandhok I dont think so

Given that Team Lotus are now using the same engine and gearbox as Red Bull the result was a complete disaster. The team must be devastated shows the car is still lacking. Back to the drawing board and another $ 90 million to find Tony and sack Gascoyne before he bankrupts you.
