Lotus has decided it will join Toro Rosso in not pursuing development of a so-called ‘F-duct’ solution – the design concept which, according to rumours, will be banned for 2011 – for its T127 challenger, according to reports from Finland’s Turun Sanomat.
The Malaysian-owned team seems to have made a considerable step forward in performance since arriving at Spain, hosting a series of new modifications as part of a revised package brought in for the start of the European season.
However, both drivers Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen are calling for the team to shift its focus to the 2011 car design.
"The sooner we begin to focus on the next car, the better," said the Finn. "It is not that we are wasting resources with this car, but as soon as the confirmation of the rules comes we should turn everything to a new car."
