Lotus Technical Director Nick Chester has revealed that Total will have a new fuel on offer for the Monaco Grand Prix which he expects will boost the performance of the troublesome E22 on the streets of the principality.

Speaking ahead of the Monte Carlo weekend, Chester said, “We’ll have a new fuel from Total which should further improve power and driveability.”

“We’ll also be bringing some specific parts aimed at giving us more downforce at what is the highest downforce track of the year. Other new parts will help tune the car for the bumpy and low speed track characteristics. The parts we’ve tested so far look good.”

“Monaco is a bit of a strange place – a one off – so it’s always dangerous to assume that your car will be good there. But I think it will suit the E22 and we should go fairly well,” added Chester. (GP247)
