They've not got a modesty panel on the stepped nose because it weighs a few grams!

nice meaty questions about putting a cosmetic panel which gives downforce, but right now they dont have a solution so its just putting weight on the car.

Not bad actual questions from this bloke.

hey! Didnt notice but the T-cam red bit on the engine cover says Kimi, so i presume the other will say Romain. New way of identifying cars, or just a lack of sponsorship?

As I expected, must have been a huge deal with Coca-Cola...

@adamcooperf1: #F1 James Allison confirms that the Lotus E21 has no cosmetic nose panel because it's extra weight. But the team might still add one

Lotus' media site is not working. How to grap the photos? :lol:

So this huge sponsorship deal with a leading drinks company still on the cards for Mclaren then? Remember the Coca Cola rumours circling, and Burn is pretty much invisible.

That was a complete waste of 15 minuets. I was excited for the car launch but... yeah.

Short and sweet but I guess it's all money out the door otherwise. Why spend half a million showing your car when you could spend a grand on sandwiches and put the rest in to R&D!
