Lotus Presents New F1 Logo

Lotus F1 Team made two important announcements during the course of this morning. The most important of those was, obviously, the confirmation of Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen as the team's official lineup in 2010, made by the very prime minister of Malaysia Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak in Kuala Lumpur.

Both Trulli and Kova attended the ceremony, as did the team's reserve driver Fairuz Fauzy. In addition to that, however, the team also presented its new logo for the F1 operations.

The new Lotus F1 Racing logo has been developed to represent the teams future and heritage. We have designed a typeface which is progressive and bold, yet instantly fitting with the teams long and successful history,” said the statement for the press, issued by Lotus F1 Team.

Taking clues from the iconic Jim Clarke Type 49 the new 'DNA' device uses the Lotus colours in a recognizable form which is extremely flexible and will become a key element of the new team brand,” added the statement.

In light of all these announcements, team principal Tony Fernandes admitted his enthusiasm over the securing of two race winners for this team's maiden campaign in the series, and emphasized Lotus F1 Team's quick reaction to the FIA's granting them an entry to the 2010 F1 championship.

We only secured our 2010 entry from the FIA in September and already we have our first car in production and have signed two Formula 1 race winners to drive for us, as well as a home-grown Malaysian driver. Not bad for three months' hard work!” said Fernandes.
