Finally Lotus F1 team has been tested their new E22 yesterday at the Jerez circuit, where the challenger performs a double shakedown of 100 km with his new car, the E22, in preparation for testing of Bahrain.
Still not official photos have been unveiled by the team in Enstone; a spectator uploaded on site published a photograph of the new Lotus, with Pastor Maldonado at the wheel today on Twitter.
This first image on which you can see the technical director Nick Chester in the background, unfortunately does not allow seeing the E22 in full. It notes, however, that the presence of Total sponsors Romain Grosjean, is indeed reduced to its simplest expression, unlike that of PDVSA, which would provide an annual budget of € 30 million to the British team.
