Video: How Lotus F1 team is developing

This is a video I shot a little while ago behind the scenes at the Lotus factory in Norfolk.

This is a video I shot a little while ago behind the scenes at the Lotus factory in Norfolk.

I've been in all the F1 team factories, apart from Hispania, some many times and Lotus is definitely one of the friendliest places. This is not surprising given that it is a new team, but all the same there is a family feel about the team that Tony Fernandes and Mike Gascoyne have built and there are many familiar faces from other F1 teams over the last 20 years.

Here we talk to Keith Saunt, who runs the factory and is the chief operating officer of the race team.

I asked him how the team has grown since it started racing, how real the links are to the Lotus F1 team of the past and to the road car company.

There is a poll for you to leave your views about Lotus' progress this season.
