yeah, we keep hearing that for the last 3 races and still somehow you manage to remain out of position. have you consider the fact that this is your real position/pace ?

The points table is the final decider on where you are. You are where you are , no ifs and buts , all teams could have been better placed IF bad things didn't happen to them. Even HRT could have been winning the championship IF they had the fastest car and drivers and money.

It's Boullier who's in a false position. The team needs a leader who can give them direction and stability, not someone who blames drivers (last year) when things go wrong or doesn't have a clue as to where they are this year.

Lotus needs to improve their pitstops!
Kimi was overtaken by Lewis during the 1st pitstop and he lost a position to Mark as well.
If they would have managed to stay in front of those two,then Kimi could pull off a three stop strategy.
I'd say the two stopper wasn't by choice,but rather a reaction to the messed up pitstop.

Boullier is Grosjean's manager. Its not quite likely that he will blame Grosjean.

Kimi's commtitment maybe.
It will be a fun next year with Briatore and Kimi. I will like to see Hamilton as Kimi's teammate at Lotus with Briatore as team principal.

You just know what the comments are going to say on an article like this... "Blah blah blah Bouiller is useless blah blah". No surprises there. The guy may not win any popularity contests at the moment but he is absolutely right you know. Lotus have a bloody quick car and their points tally so far does not reflect that fact. If they can string a decent race together they have a very real chance at the podium I think, but so far that hasn't happened for a number of reasons. I think the risk is that they might fall behind in development though, so if they can't make it work now chances are that podium will be out of reach come the european season and all the updates that come along with it...

The two non finishes for Romain Grosjean, and the non points finish for Kimi Raikkonen were misfortunes that could have worked out differently for Lotus on race days. Im hoping Eric sees this more as the 'glass is half full'. Perez and Sauber being ahead in both standings may be a sore point for the team, the same with Alonso and Ferrari, however Alonso has managed to finish ahead of Lotus in two out of three races, they will need to look at how he/they managed to do so, along with Perez and Sauber in Malaysia, which coincides with the best result for the team to date. The close nature of racing between the pack means that very little preparation for the oppertunities can be left to chance.
