Lotus T127 Cosworth

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

I think they could make that logo a bit better, it seems off a bit, the typography of the TEAM LOTUS text. I think the old Team Lotus never used that logo, I think they had the Lotus-logo and Team Lotus text on the side of the cockpit. I've seen a Team Lotus logo with the Team text above and Lotus below the ACBC, looked nicer that way.

Looking like Team Lotus are gonna go with a pull rod for the rear end next year, and with the smallest gearbox on the grid as well, this will reduce their wheelbase as well potentially. Also coupled with the RS27 Renault engine, the Lotus car will take a massive leap forward, id say thats easily 2.5% whitch would put them right in the area that Sauber and Williams will be in next year going on potential driver match-ups and performances.

yes seems like it lol.

But i dont know what to think about it, the Red Bull system isnt that reliable, the renault system itself is much more reliable.

Other than the diffuser, or the f-duct, why would they not copy the class of the field? :?

They should have the EBD, but in what form? Something like what Mclaren has now maybe?

Was said to be by Patrick Head on the BBC1 5LiveF1 coverage at Canada, the Red Bull one is the smallest on the grid, with the Xtrac one being the largest.

To venture off topic, this has also just said to me that the Toro Rosso team is close to a sale. As murmors have been afoot for a while about that teams sale and the fact they need more investment at Faenza.

Scarbs blog says that the new gearbox will be designed in part (or completely) by Lotus... Maybe Lotus will design the gearbox casing and the suspension attachment points? I remember reading that there are some people in Lotus that were from the gearbox/hydraulics department at Toyota.
