We have been invited to visit Lotus Racing’s Formula 1 factory in Hingham, Norfolk where the team’s headquarters is housed and where its Formula 1 cars are built. The trip will take place mid this week in the heart of winter where we will join selected members of the media and take part in a factory tour which will give us more insight on how a Formula 1 team is run and how the race car is developed.

Speaking about the race car, we could be treated to a sneak peak on the developments of next year’s machine. We are also scheduled to carry out interviews with the team’s key personnel and drivers including Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen.

The team did confirm that we will be able to interview both drivers hence it points to the fact that both Jarno and Heikki will be maintained at least for the 2011 season. The team has yet to officially confirm the line-up but principal Tony Fernandes has hinted before that there is no reason to change the line-up.

Hopefully we will also score some juicy details on the possibility of the team keeping its name since Group Lotus is rumored to sponsor the Renault Formula 1 team next year. Are there any questions that you would like us to ask Lotus Racing during the visit? Leave your feedback after the jump as we will try to accommodate.
