Looks nice and more modern then the crappy T127
It looks great. Now they had more time than couple of months to create a car and hopefully it shows on track. At least they are hopeful and are aiming for points straight from the first race. It is interesting to see pre-season test laptimes later this week.
I hope this team does well. They were very good last year (all things considered) and the only way from here is up.
I belive this car got some potential.
There's a nice e-magazine from the team as well here: http://cdn.skive.co.uk/TLN_LaunchIssue.pdf Explains some of their decisions, like the one to abandon KERS, but go with the flexible rear wing still.
:wink: I agree
Today in the afternoon they managed to drive first time laps in this years testing when they finally got powersteering working. They say setup work wasn't done yet etc and their lap time was 2,5 seconds slower than this weeks fastest laptime so I hope and want to believe that this car has a potential to become regular midfield racer on upcoming season. Almost 100 problem free laps today, so it is at least way better start than last year. Next test at Jerez will tell us more, hopefully.
I've said this before but if anyone is interested, follow Fernandes, Gascoyne, Kovalainen and Team Lotus in twitter and facebook. They are sending a lots of stuff all the time and it is interesting to follow.
Nice video from the test.
