By on Thursday, June 16, 2011

Jun.16 (GMM) Team Lotus' latest sponsor deal will mean the outfit runs KERS technology in 2012.

Team owner and boss Tony Fernandes announced this week the green T128 cars will begin running General Electric branding from Silverstone in July.

Asked by CNN if the wide-ranging agreement will lead to Team Lotus running energy-recovery technology in F1 next year, he said: "Without a doubt. Definitely, next year, we will have KERS ... so it's a big plus, not only financially, but technologically".

In 2011, Team Lotus is one of only a few teams not already using KERS technology.
