Better-than-expected 'good start' for Lotus

The team's technical director James Allison agreed with that, characterising the day's work as "a steady start" for both drivers.

"The car has run reliably and reasonably quickly, but we feel there's more to come from it," he said. "Broadly it’s been a successful day in terms of the programme we had in mind for these opening sessions.

"There's still work to be done, but we're certainly running with the leading group which bodes well for the rest of the weekend," he added.
