ffs. Lotus are Team Lotus
Lotus Renault are Renault.

Lotus Renault GP is like Vodafone McLaren Mercedes. Lotus is NOT the constructor - Renault is!

a quote from Rosberg:
And here's more from Rosberg on the adjustable rear wing, which can be activated by the driver when he is within a second of the car in front. He did manage to try it in his brief spell on the track and says it will take getting used to. "You push the button and it lowers at the back, so you feel the car gets lighter, and then you release the button again before braking," he said. "But you think 'Jeez, what if it hasn't gone back to its original position,' because if it doesn't you are off in a big way. It's going to take some adjusting. Because it moves we don't know how quick it resets itself once you release the button again. It could be too late and it's not properly attached, so it's still a bit of a concern."
