Lotus strengthens management team

S M Nasarudin and Dato' Kamarudin Meranun named as deputy team principals of the Lotus F1 team
Lotus Racing has announced that S M Nasarudin and Dato' Kamarudin Meranun will take up positions as deputy team principals for the 2010 F1 season.

The pair, who are shareholders in the team, will work alongside team principal Tony Fernandes during the season ahead.

“We made this dream possible, turning it from a simple Malaysian dream to reality,” Nasarudin said. “This was all made possible through passion, hard work and team spirit. As with all the challenges that we have had to face to get to where we are now, we embraced these challenges as a team and now are even more determined to finish what we have started.

“We are realistic of our goals and by no means will it be easy from this point onwards, but the belief is there. We will consistently bring with us a professional and confident set up to each of the races for this season. As team owners, and in our deputy principal roles, it further reflects our continued belief and commitment to this team.”

Team chief Fernandes added that the appointments would make the team stronger for the season ahead.

“Our goals and objectives are clear but, as mentioned earlier, there is still a huge task at hand,” he said. “We have 19 races to go through and, with the three of us assisting each other in our roles, we believe that the management has all the necessary resources to bring the team to the forefront.”

The Lotus T127, launched in London last week, will hit the track for testing at Jerez tomorrow [Wednesday] leaving Campos Meta1 and USF1 as the only teams to complete any running ahead of the new season.
