Lotus F1’s team principal Tony Fernandes has revealed on his Twitter page that he, or the Lotus F1 team has to decide on four drivers for two seats. Prior to that Fernandes also announced that the team has already signed its first driver but did not reveal anything more than that, but I am pretty confident it is Japanese rookie Kamui Kobayashi.
But if that is so, why did he mention “four driver for two seats”? It is getting a little confusing now and I do hope the team will make an official announcement soon. As for the other seat, many are pointing at Jarno Trulli since he has a good relationship with the team’s technical chief Mike Gascoyne. He also recently “twitted” that the team has almost confirmed all sponsors for the Malaysian Formula 1 team.
