Lotus Formula 1 team confirms Jarno Truli and Heikki Kovalainen as its pilots | Rpmgo.com



As you heard a few months ago, Lotus is coming back to Formula 1, albeit in a rather different way. Even though the Malaysian team will only borrow the name, under license, from Proton, which currently owns the famous British brand, and will use some of the company’s racing expertise, it is enough for old time Lotus fans to start watching the next season of Formula 1.

Now, they will be happy to know that the team has officially signed Jarno Truli and Heikki Kovalainen as its drivers for the 2010 season. The two pilots, each with one Grand Prix win in their resume, will provide valuable expertise and experience to the rookie team next year, according to a spokesperson.

As you can see, a new logo has also been found, reviving the famous British Racing Green with gold inserts, which made the Lotus F1 team famous. Hopefully the new team will make the Lotus name proud and duke it out with the best team out there in the next season.
