Pastor Maldonado has admitted he is looking forward to Lotus’ switch from Renault to Mercedes power for 2015.
The Venezuelan has said consistently this year he does not regret moving last winter from Williams to the Enstone-based team. But almost a full season on, while Williams made an impressive leap from the rear of the midfield to the upper grid hatchings in 2014, Lotus’ reverse in fortunes has been just as dramatic.
Romain Grosjean has denied that Lotus’ new Mercedes engine deal makes it less likely he will stay with the Enstone team beyond 2014.
On the face of it, the struggling team’s switch from an underpowered Renault ‘power unit’ is good news for Lotus’ frustrated drivers. “It will help Lotus,” Grosjean agreed at Sochi. “I am sure that next year the team will be more competitive. The option of (staying with) Lotus has become quite attractive.”
