Qualifying key to victory for Lotus

438 views

Jun.18 (GMM) Victory will be within Lotus' grasp if the Enstone based team can improve its qualifying pace.

Romain Grosjean finished within sight of Lewis Hamilton in Canada earlier this month, having qualified only seventh.

Also driven this year by 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen, a black and gold E20 has not started a single Grand Prix from the front row of the grid in 2012.

...that is not our strength this season but we are working on it.

But reigning GP2 champion Grosjean insists that the difference between the performance of the Lotus and the very best cars in 2012 is "not that big".

"We need to qualify better, that is not our strength this season but we are working on it," said the Frenchman.

"If we are able to have a strong weekend from the beginning, we are able to fight for the podium and even for victory," he is quoted by Brazil's Globo.
