Lotus E22 - trial 2015 nose configuration

02 Nov 2014

On Friday in the United States Lotus used Romain Grosjean's car to trial a new nose which respects the revised 2015 rules in this area of the car.

These are intended to avoid the somewhat unattractive solutions seen this year and ensure the initial emphasis of designs is safety rather than performance. In looks it is not dissimilar to Ferrari's current flat and low shape. Lotus ran it only in the morning session in order to gather data before returning to their familiar 'tuning fork' or 'twin tusk' design in the afternoon.
