Lotus pull out of Jerez test

06 Jan 2014 21:31

Lotus have pulled out of the first testing session of the 2014 season at Jerez in Spain later this month.

Instead of taking part in Jerez from January 28-31, Lotus will instead make their bow in Bahrain on February 19, team technical director Nick Chester said.

Chester said Lotus simply wouldn't yet be ready for the Jerez test but will most likely unveil their new car just before the Bahrain test.
