Lotus Return To F1 With Final Team Slot For 2010
Team Lotus, one of the most synonymous names with Formula One will return to the top formula of racing for the 2010 season.
The team, which will be backed by Malaysian funding, takes BMW Sauber’s lost slot. That said, BMW’s application was so good, they have been placed onto a reserve team list.
Lotus will be based in Norfolk, England, just a handful of miles away from their road car production factory, in the former Bentley Le Mans factory, also used by Toyota in their very early F1 days.
Mike Gascoyne,a long term figurehead of Formula One racing will also join the team. Also believed to be a part of the team is the Air Asia Airline, who could be the title sponsor. Perhaps Alex Yoong too, Malaysia’s F1 Driver might test or even race for the team.
