Nice work Kovi and team, I can see these guys making steady progress and hopefully challenging the mid pack sooner rather than later. Would be nice to have the new teams mixing it up so that Q1 isn't all about 1 fall guy!

@Josh, apparently, the only reason that he highlight it as the 'best race' is because 1 of his car beat a more established, as well as sponsored by his nemesis, Group Lotus Team.

For most it is priceless when it comes to humiliating your hated rival..

Hated team, do we need this sort of attitude in F1 I dont think we do, and his team finished in front of a sick Renault with Petrov driving.... Truli DNF and they still got zero points Zero that means they have not scored a single point in nearly 2 seasons

and Fernandes is delighted

More than a step fordward by Lotus, I saw two things struggling big way: Renault and Alguersuari...

You can't be too proud when your cars are 5 seconds of the pace...even if they finish 1st while others had misfortune.

It's simply blindness.

Just because Renault shot themselves in the foot by getting rid of the wrong driver, Team Lotus Caterham can't claim they achieved anything as been said 1 DNF and 1 p16 is a dreadful result for a team that forecast it would be beating Williams, Force India, and Torro Roso by Barcelona Talk is cheap for this type of person results are a little harder to come by than PR hype

Racing is for racers
