Lotus agrees Alpinestars deal

Lotus announces a new multi-year partnership with Alpinestars
Lotus has confirmed that it has agreed a multi-year deal with Alpinestars to take effect from the upcoming F1 season.

The company will provide performance racing products to Lotus duo Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean, while the team's mechanics and technical staff will also benefit from Alpinestars technical expertise and support.

That support will include both on track on race weekends, and at Alpinestars' product development facilities in Northern Italy and California.

“Alpinestars is an internationally recognized and respected brand so it's fantastic for the team to agree a partnership,” Lotus team boss Eric Boullier said. “The support and proactive approach that Alpinestars brings will benefit the team in many ways.

“I'm looking forward to seeing our drivers in their ultra-lightweight, safe and stylish new race attire alongside the ultra-lightweight, safe and stylish E21.”

Kimi really did a great job this year, he put this team back on the map single-handedly. Cannot believe the amazing job he did in his first year back.
