Malaysians might have to wait a bit longer to see Fairuz Fauzy racing in Formula 1. This comes after Lotus Racing’s Chief Technical Officer, Mike Gascoyne expressed his satisfaction with the current two drivers.

“I think the intention is to stick with the drivers we’ve got. I think they’re doing a great job,” said Gascoyne. There were rumours circulating that Jarno Trulli underperforming would be Fauzy’s ticket into a Formula 1 race seat. The fact that Fauzy has been included in Free Practice sessions intensifies the situation.

On Trulli’s performance in this season, Gascoyne stated it has been down to appalling luck and reliability. “That’s the thing with experienced guys, if we give them the car, they can perform with it. Jarno has shown he can still pull the big laps out when he has a trouble-free weekend,” he added.

No time line has been provided as to when the 2011 official line up will be announced, only that it will be “very soon.” So keep your eyes peeled for the next update.
