Lotus is eyeing a few more staff for its burgeoning Formula One team.

An employee joked to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport that the factory in Norfolk is "about as big as the McLaren canteen!".

But it houses 160 staff, with 45 more employees working for Lotus at the Italian Aerolab wind tunnel.

"220 (staff) would be good," said technical boss Mike Gascoyne.

In September 2009, Gascoyne was among the new team's original 4 team members.
