Well, Mr Murray has designed great motorcars and been involved in great F1 cars. I wish Gordon all the best in helping group Lotus... They need all the help they can get on a budget to move up passed a few teams.

This is an interesting appointment. Gordon Murray,has links with McLaren /Mercedes and a good race pedigree. Whereas Group Lotus have links with Red Bull. What an amazing mix. If they could just raise a little more cash, this all could prove to be very,very productive for the future .

Bloody hell! If there was one person I never expected to see back in F1, it was Gordon Murray!

Welcome back! :D

Personally I would prefer to see him designing cars again to see what he could come up with, but after so long out - that might not be a wise thing.

Eitherway, having such an influencial person in your team can only work wonders on the marketing side... with the way the team has been running of late, this is a really nice addition to try and sort things out!
