Lotus will launch their 2013 contender tonight, the first F1 team to do so this season, and will be followed by ten days of launches by teams, except for Marussia who have yet to confirm when they will unveil their new car.
Lotus will become the first team to reveal its new car, with an online launch of the E21 broadcast via the internet from its Enstone base on Monday evening.
Most other teams will follow suit in short order, in time for the first test of the official pre-season period at Jerez starting early next week.
The only exception is Williams, who will wait until the second test in Barcelona to run the FW35.
When asked about the team’s immediate plans the Russo-Anglo team’s spokesperson said, “We haven’t yet announced our launch and testing plans. It would be desirable to roll all our news (including [the] driver announcement) into one and this is what I’m working towards. As soon as we can, we will confirm all our news in the usual unilateral way.” (GMM & Apex)
