Test on a new exhaust system in Lotus brought positive results, and it looks like the team will continue to use the “Coanda effect” this weekend in qualifying rounds and in the race, but so far no decision was made officially by the company. “We are quite pleased with the new products,” – said James Ellison. “The data telemetry we liked, although I understand that it is not so easy to implement it at once, and without any problems. Unless we decided just to leave or not, but I think that we will leave this option of the exhaust system”. So in fact, it is all just a matter of time after all.

“It is too early to make a definitive assessment” – said the one who tried out a new exhaust Kimi Raikkonen. “We need to carefully research the data of the tests. We waited a little more, but maybe we will get it tomorrow?”, a small joke from him in the end sets everyone on the good mood.
