Lotus Cars talk to Lotus Ambassador Jean Alesi and ask him what he thought of Lotus Renault GP’s performance in Singapore, and reflecting on Vettel’s fantastic season.
Lotus Renault GP got both cars in the top ten in qualifying, which must have come as a relief after all the head-scratching in Singapore?
It was uncomfortable to watch the pace in Singapore. They weren’t as competitive as they should have been, but things were back on track in Suzuka. Qualifying was impressive, and this is at one of the most demanding circuits ever built. So that’s encouraging but based on where they started I was disappointed with the result. Ninth and 16th: I expected a little better.
