Lotus please come back in strength - Road cars and F1!

Just the fact that the Caterham (Lotus) Seven is still in demand and sells strongly must say something.

I was ieary of this guy from the beginning. He seemed to be given a lot of authority. I knew it would not be long before his name came up, when I read that the Lotus teams in Indy car racing were having problems. I am not sure if this had anything to do with his dismissal, but it seemed to me that he was spreading an awful lot of the company in so many different areas. I am an ex-Lotus owner and I was happy to see that they were back in racing and in all the different divisions but I also thought he may have been over extending financially. We all know how expensive racing can be.
Just a thought, thanks for letting me give my opinion.

Dany's been getting bashed by a lot of Malaysians - so I'm not surprised DRB decided to "suspend" him.

A lot have thought that with DRB taking over Proton, they'd cut Lotus loose.

Kudos to Dany for helping Lotus out of the endless rut of Elise variations and special-editions. I hope that his suspension doesn't foreshadow more bad news for the company, after word that his big lineup plans were all put on indefinite hold. Lotus *just* climbed out of the track-special market, it'd be such a shame for them to go into cost-cutting mode and fall out of relevance again.
