Lotus bringing wing upgrades to Monaco
20 May 2013 – Lotus has confirmed upgrades to the front wing, rear wing and floor of the E21 chassis for this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix, with the Enstone-based outfit vying to keep main rivals Ferrari and Red Bull in sight as the Constructors' battle develops.
Although Lotus slipped behind Ferrari in Barcelona, the team is within a Grand Prix victory of current leaders Red Bull and, ahead of the annual visit to Monte-Carlo, Trackside Operations Director Alan Permane is confident of a strong display.
"Similar to Barcelona, we will be bringing a new rear wing which follows the same concept as the one we ran in Monaco last year," Permane said of the upgrade plan.
"There will also be a new front wing and some modifications to the floor, so plenty to keep us occupied. We’re confident in the upgrade package and the car has worked well at every circuit so far this season, so there’s no reason it won’t be strong here."
