This track suited the W03.
Melbourne 2012 - suited Lotus, 1 row in qualy ( race will not speak), but they had good result on end
Melbourne 2013 - Lotus win
Malaysia 2012 - suited Lotus, penalty for gearbox and again problems, they had on end good result but not podium
Malaysia 2013 - same, with penaly 3 places, they had on end good result but not podium
China 2012 - suited Lotus less, but they had 8 laps before ending race 2nd place in pocket, ending result was solid
China 2013 - suited Lotus more, they had 2nd place
From what i see, Lotus improved their results or are at least same from last year, i expect fully domination on tracks
where last year had podiums or very good results. For Mercedes, dont make me laugh i expect them to challenge podium guys nothing more, at least 3 more teams are slightly better then them (Bulls, Lotus, Ferrari). They sure
can win against one of their cars like in China, but expect some win like Ferrari in China or Lotus in Australia is
SF (for now)!
