And is amongst the slowest of the field.
I was optimistic that the team sporting the classic green and yellow would be able to bring some honor to the storied marque, but it has not been so. Some of you may have seen Red Bull's Mark Webber ("Mak Wibbah") take an unplanned flight in the European Grand Prix at Valencia, Spain. The hard-charging Red Bull got wings when it ran into the back of the slower Lotus driven by Heikki Kovalainen. There's video of the accident on the Internet, but none that can be re-posted here.
Along with Virgin Racing and HRT, Lotus has become part a moving chicane this season.
Maybe it's time for a logo change.
