Lotus have announced their driver line-up for their first Formula 1 pre-season test of the 2014 season, starting in Bahrain on Wednesday, 19 February.
First on duty will be Romain Grosjean who will be on duty in the eagerly anticipated E22 on the first two days – Wednesday and Thursday, thereafter team newcomer Pastor Maldonado will take over the cockpit for the final two days – Friday and Saturday.
This will be first public running of the Renault V6 turbo powered Lotus E22, which made its track debut at Jerez last week under controlled conditions of a ‘promotional event’ as allowed by the regulations.
