Lotus revealed their E20 car online
Lotus are the latest team to have taken the covers off their 2012 race car.
Their challenger is called the E20. The name comes from their factory in Enstone, as this is the 20th Formula 1 car to be produced there.
The car features a stepped nose like its competitors, though not as extreme as Ferrari’s yesterday.
Lotus underwent large changes over the off-season, being taken over by Group Lotus, and switching both its drivers for Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean.
The team were known to be working on a reactive ride height system, though it was banned by the FIA last month.
The E20 was launched online, but the Lotus website has crashed several times under the pressure of thousands of viewers. Pictures are slow to be released, but they will be added as they arrive.
Here is the official video from Lotus:
