At the same time the McLaren unveiled its new MP4-29, Lotus published via Twitter their new car. With the conflict between the two groups increasing, simultaneously rumours about an agreement between Eric Boullier and the British team are also increasing.
On the technical side, at first glance, the absence of Y100 element from the rear spoiler is obvious, and the different nose with a characteristic forked end. Finally, the philosophy of the suspensions has not changed, with a push-rod at front and a pull-rod at the back. However, many details are likely to change until the first appearance of the E22 at the second test of the winter testing in Bahrain.
Furthermore we observe the absence of intakes for the DRD, but also a “simple” bonnet, which of course will change in the actual car.
