After Karun's performance today... i'm not sure what Lotus can do.

Karun is going just as fast as Trulli and will only improve with practice... but his race was poor and littered with mistakes... would Team Lotus prefer to use an old hand who could probably make better use of a confusing scenario, or risk it with inexperiance and pace?

Eitherway.... Trulli... listen to DC, he is talking from past experience!

Gotta agree with DC. Trulli is past his best and needs replacing, but with somebody who is good. Chadhok has once again proved that he isn't cut out for F1.

utter tosh!!!
Jarno is far better than the car and looking at the grid, would do better than all but the top 6-8 drivers given a half decent car. I have nothing against say Barrichello or Heidfeld but they get a drive year after year and hardly set the world alight.

And even if Jarno was to move on ( and it won't be to NASCAR ) there are far better than KC, charming though he is, who deserve a drive first. but of course it gets more about £££ each year doesn't it.

The Lotus is not good enough, but it has to develop - who will do that better, Jarno or Karun?

The lack of testing is making things difficult for younger drivers like Karun to improve at the same time the smaller teams can't afford it and need the money. Tough situation for Lotus, Virgin and HRT.

@arcuid. Team Lotus

They knew the problems before they entered F1, it was Lotus own words that has put them under so much pressure. It was Gascoyne & Fernandes claims of beating Williams , Sauber, force India, and Toro Rosso by the first quarter of this season. Now the sponsors money has dried up they have to look for money from underperforming pay drivers.

If you cant take the heat get out of the kitchen

Changhok over Trulli crazy
