Lotus CEO Matthew Carter reckons that the squad should be able to join the race for fourth place in the Constructors' championship.
Lotus currently occupies sixth position in the team standings, 10 points behind Force India, who in turn have a 24 point gap to overturn against Red Bull.
"We're definitely targeting fourth, so it will be interesting to see how the rest of the season pans out" he said.
"I think the key for us as a team is to get both of our cars to the end of the race and once we start to do that we can start to accumulate the points we believe we deserve and that we believe we've missed out on to this point.
"As long as we can work on our reliability, I think we know the pace is there, we know the downforce is there, as long as we can work on the reliability and we can get both cars to the end of the race then we are certainly looking for fourth and we're certainly looking to get up the championship table."
A winding-up petition against Lotus has been put back two weeks, after the high court gave the outfit an extra two weeks to come to an agreement with selected creditors.
