Team Lotus has dropped its reserve and 'Friday' driver Fairuz Fauzy after a single season together in 2010.

The 28-year-old Malaysian's father and manager Haji Fauzy revealed that the team "prematurely terminated" the contract last week "without reason".

"We are now looking at all avenues to fit him as a full time race driver in an international racing series of the same stature, but of course Formula One is our main priority," Fauzy Snr added.

The driver's management confirmed that the deal was supposed to be for five years, but in a statement said they "respect the decision" of Team Lotus.
