The team's trackside operations director, Alan Permane, actually seemed completely energised by the cold, wet and difficult conditions that Lotus had experienced on Saturday.
"It's been fun today reacting to the different weather conditions," he said. "We're in good shape. We've made some improvements to our wet setup following lessons learnt in pre-season testing which have certainly worked."
Even so, Pername wasn't disputing the FIA's decision to delay the remainder of qualifying overnight.
"It's a shame that we can't finish qualifying today, but it's absolutely the correct decision," he said. "It was too wet."
Pername said that the team wasn't too worried about the rollover of qualifying to race day, pointing out that "we've looked good come both wet and dry so far". The only issue could be if one or both of the team's drivers have any serious issues in Q2 and Q3 that end up with damage on their cars that needs fixing.
"It doesn't change things too much if everything goes well in qualifying, but if there is a lot of work to do on the car between qualifying and the race then it's going to be a busy day!" he admitted.
"In terms of the weather it looks like tomorrow should be dry, in which case the supersoft is the faster qualifying tyre," he added, moving on to tyre strategies for the race. "That means the top ten starting on the supersoft and working to maximise its potential at the start of the race on high fuel and a newly washed track surface. The medium compound will be the preferred race tyre."
