Lotus to run 2014 F1 car at Jerez on Friday

Lotus will shake down the E22 during a filming day with Pastor Maldonado driving the new car at Jerez
Lotus will run its 2014 car – the E22 – for the first time at Jerez on Friday.

Having skipped the first test at the same circuit last week, Lotus will perform a shakedown of its new car during a filming day. The E22 was first revealed in January when the team released an image of the car online at the same time McLaren launched its MP4-29.




Only Pastor Maldonado is set to drive, with the team limited on a filming day to a maximum of 100km on Pirelli demonstration tyres.

However, with Renault having suffered problems at last week's test, how much running the team is able to carry out could be telling. Renault-powered cars – Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Caterham – only managed a total of 151 laps throughout the whole week of testing at Jerez.

whitew. that's a bit harsh on maldo! comparing him to m4ie? maldo has a far better record than m4xie prior to f1, and in f1, maldo has WO a race, and been well up in others. yes, a bit reckless and moody, but miles ahead (literally) of m4xie.
