Formula One News » Lotus looking to challenge for the win from China onwards.

Lotus, who won the opening grand prix at Australia, insist there drop in form at the Malaysian grand prix is not the start of a downward curve and that they hope to be fighting at the front come the 2013 Chinese grand prix.

Speaking about Malaysia, team principal Eric Boullier said “I don’t think it’s completely revealing, Obviously we had different conditions and it worked for Red Bull, Mercedes and Ferrari. I don’t think it revealed our potential in that race. You can expect some much better results in normal conditions.”

“Qualifying was not in our favour, the time we lost at the start of the race we couldn’t recover,”

“I think the team did a safe strategy for both cars in the points and we could keep contact with the leaders so it was good.
“With our car we have the pace over one lap now and we also have some good race pace,”

“I think Romain’s going to have the same upgrade in China as Kimi. There are parts coming at every race and we’ll keep pushing, so it’s going to be interesting.”
