From what I've read about and from Allison I'm impressed by him. Must be a blow for the team to loose him at this stage, which is the tragedy for every up and coming team that lacks a bit of funding compared to the big teams. Every time they manage to build a couple of good cars the key guys are bought away before the team can attract enough sponsors to keep them onboard.

I really hope the boys at Lotus are not mentally effected by this sudden change. They really need to keep morale high internally. There is going to be a lot of specualtion in the coming days that I hope does not cloud the excellent performance we have seen so far this season.

I don't believe in gardening leave in F1.We all saw what Newey took from Williams to Mclaren.
. In their leisure time,what will they be doing?Of course,not star gazing,or any of those tripe.They will be psyching themselves up to meet the next challenge.
Since we know F1 is a cloak and dagger game,they are not going to sit idle with no knowledge of their technical expectations of their new team Unless they are angels.That is my opinion.Did not insult anyone,so will the minders spare me of edit.

I am sure the money and politics of a certain RED (not red bull) team is behind this. By taking out Allison, they nullified Kimi challenge of 2013 and got themselves a good designer for 2014 for the eye-brow man..Bye Bye Pat Fry.
