This will be Team Lotus’ third year in F1. The team has competed under the Lotus name since 2012, following the renaming of the former Renault team based at Enstone in Oxfordshire. Lotus F1 Team is owned by Luxembourg-based venture capital group Genii Capital.
2014 saw Lotus fall down the order to eighth overall as the team struggled to make the E22 and its hybrid Renault power unit reliable or competitive. Grosjean scores eight points and Maldonado just two, with the former's eighth places in Spain and Monaco their best results of the year.
The drivers for the 2015 season are Frenchman Romain Grosjean and Venezuelan driver Pastor Maldonado.
