Getting the perfect lap - VIDEO

The Lotus F1 team gives a glimpse into the efforts that go to getting ultimate performance on track.
Finding the ideal line around any given race track has long been acknowledged as the best way to a quick lap time, but there is a lot more to the 'perfect lap' than hitting every apex….

Suremen, an official partner of the Lotus F1 team, has released an exclusive behind-the-scenes video that delves into the secrets, meticulous planning, rigorous physical training and cutting edge technology that combine to produce the perfect lap

Narrated by former Sky Sports F1 presenter Georgie Thompson, the unique video, which allows viewers to control what they watch, tells the story of how every member of the Lotus team plays a crucial role in delivering the perfect lap – from the pit crew who practice thousands of pit-stops to save vital tenths-of-a-second, to the incredible five-days-a-week fitness regime, the mind-blowing reaction times of Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean and how the drivers communicate with the pit wall at speeds in excess of 200kph.

The video follows the team's E21 car around the circuit, offering key points at which viewers can access additional interview features with the drivers and team members which reveal details of their preparation and the huge financial investment in state-of-the-art technology.

“It's hard to comprehend the amount of time and effort that teams invest in the pursuit of glory,” Thompson concludes, “The perfect lap only happens when everything falls in to place – the drivers have to perform on the track, but everything the team has been working on also needs to come together.”
