Lotus (2010-11)

2010: Team Lotus

I’m just grateful this site was around to report on the existence of this livery in real-time, rather than it being a memory of the past like most of the best ones are. A glorious, one-season wonder (subsequent Lotus/Caterhams were nice, but not as good as this) that deserved better than a team [Read More]

2011 Liveries: The Verdict!

Right, then. We’ve now seen all twelve of 2011’s Formula One liveries. I wanted to wait, before doing the usual summary post, until we’d seen them all running on track in testing – but frankly, from the looks of things we may not see the HRT in motion before Melbourne [Read More]

2010 Liveries : The Verdict!

Well, with all 12 teams’ liveries now unveiled, and the season opening race mere days away, I thought it time to take one last look at all 12 together, to see how they compare to one-another – and to the history of liveries in general – and give them all marks out of ten. [Read More]

Official Lotus Pictures

Mere minutes (I think) away from the Lotus F1 launch, and would you believe… I’ve got pictures. Shhh. Don’t tell anyone! I’m in love. It’s beautiful. Green and yellow, edged with white. Unobtrusive sponsor logos, all elegantly in white. The race number in a circle. [Read More]

THE LOTUS F1 IS GREEN AND YELLOW AND UTTERLY GORGEOUS

I’d already heard secretive mutterings about this, but it seems Autosport have done gone let the cat out of the bag by posting a spy shot from today’s “shakedown” session. So here it is: More reaction when they officially launch the thing and we get to see it properly, but [Read More]
