Team Lotus is the latest F1 team to confirm it will be running its 2011 campaigner at the first pre-season test at Valencia.

But the maiden running of the car will be delayed by a day – missing out on the first day of pre-season testing – so the team can take advantage of the sport’s rules allowing it a private test day, which it will use on 4 February.

The team will officially launch its 2011 challenger – dubbed the ‘T11’ – at 5AM GMT (midday in Tony Fernandes’ Malaysia) on Monday 31 January.
