Lotus Racing blooms into life

Lotus came a step closer to ending 16 years away from the Formula 1 grid with the launch of its 2010 challenger at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London. Lotus Racing’s T127 certainly looks quick – clad in traditional green and yellow – but we’ll have to wait until the first race in Bahrain to find out how quick.
