Lotus F1 reveals first E22 image

Lotus reveals a first glimpse at its unique contender for the 2014 Formula 1 season...
Lotus has revealed the first images of its 2014 Formula 1 World Championship challenger, the E22, complete with its own unique interpretation of the upcoming technical regulation changes.

Coming hot on the heels of McLaren's much anticipated F1 2014 launch, which provided the first proper view of the much discussed 'low and thin' noses which are expected to be a common sight in 2014, Lotus's rendered image shows it has approached the regulations in an alternative way, with a dual-pronged method to the front-end.

The E22, which won't be seen in the metal until the second F1 test at Bahrain next month following Lotus' decision to skip next week's Jerez outing, will be driven by Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado in 2014.

Though the livery design retains the similar black and gold colours of previous years, there is notable space given over to Venezuelan oil giant PDVSA, whose backing helped Maldonado make the switch from Williams.

Revealed on the team's official Twitter page, the unveiling comes after it was announced earlier today that Eric Boullier will be stepping down, from his role as team principal.

Since the first unveiling, Lotus has provided a second angle of the E22, with the top-down shot showing the 'forked' nose in greater detail.
