Third-placed Ferrari have a 14-point lead over the Enstone outfit with only six more races left in the current campaign.
However, Lotus have struggled for pace in recent races but the team's technical director James Allison is confident they can turn things around and get one over the Italian squad.
"Fourteen races in and we've had a handful of results that have allowed Ferrari to open up a small gap on us in the Championship," Allison said.
"We fight each weekend with strong and dedicated opposition who will leave us for dead if we take our eye off the ball for one moment, but the great thing about this sport is that the opportunity to do the same is always there for your team as well. Every weekend you have a chance at redemption and we're fortunate to have a number of items that we believe will improve our car over the remaining races.
"The gap to Ferrari is small in terms of the points available, so our goal over the next six races is to overtake them in the Championship and to put Kimi [Raikkonen] back on a path that will allow him to close the gap to the front."
