May 8 (GMM) Lotus is not about to join those teams pushing hard to develop a so-called F-duct solution for its 2010 car, according to Finland’s Turun Sanomat.
The new Malaysian-backed team has made a big step forward with a revised package for the Spanish grand prix, but driver Heikki Kovalainen thinks the focus should soon turn to 2011.
“The sooner we begin to focus on the next car, the better,” said the Finn.
“It is not that we are wasting resources with this car, but as soon as the confirmation of the rules comes we should turn everything to a new car,” he added.
Meanwhile, it is rumoured in Barcelona that F-duct systems could be banned at the end of the season.
