on

The 1Malaysia Formula One Team, better know as Lotus, is on the verge of announcing its first driver for the 2010 FIA Formula One Championship season. Tony Fernandes, Team Boss of Lotus, wrote on his Twitter page that a signing has been made, but he does not give any clues as to who the man in question is.

Fernandes wrote: "1Malaysia Formula 1 team, aka Lotus, has signed its first driver. Public announcement soon. The dream continues."

Jarno Trulli is the one driver that has been strongly linked with Lotus and after the withdrawal of Toyota the road to the 1Malaysia Formula 1 team seems wide open for the Italian.
