Just one event away from the race debut of their much-awaited ‘Double DRS’, Lotus experienced a tough day in Singapore. After Friday’s opening pair of practice sessions, Romain Grosjean and Kimi Räikkönen were in tenth and twelfth positions.
“It wasn’t the easiest of days for us,” the title contender admitted. “We don’t have enough grip for some reason and we seem to be lacking downforce. It’s the same on both tyres; a little bit better when the tyres are new, but still not quite the pace we want.
"I think we can improve for tomorrow but we have to find two seconds to get to the front. I don’t think we’ll find that much time, but I think we should improve from Friday as we usually do.”
Marina Bay marks the return of Grosjean from his one-ran ban.
“It feels good to be back on-track,” he began. “Our position on the timesheets in the morning was not what we’d have liked and even after FP2 we know there is more performance to be found. The car is basically the same as what we ran in Monaco and Budapest, where we were very competitive, but we’ve struggled a bit for grip today.”
The Enstone-based team, then known as Renault F1, won the inaugural Singapore Grand Prix of 2008 courtesy of the pre-planned crash for Nelsinho Piquet.
