The E22, the final car to hit the track in pre season build up, should get a run out today at Jerez, Spain. It is due to be a shakedown in preparation for the crucial tests starting in a couple of

Pastor Maldonado will the car and he tweeted, Finally back to the work, planing a filming day in today. Looking forward to the new E22.

Lotus elected to skip the group test last which in retrospect looks a reasonable plan given the that Renault powered encountered. Most severe was the Red team, which managed 21 laps of running.
