I think ultimately this might be wishful thinking on the part of Lotus. I recall reading something a bit back about PDVSA being overruled by the Venezuelan sporting minister saying that they didn't want the company to spend one more dollar in F1? We'll see but at some point between the year Maldonado is having and the year Lotus is having, the 45 million they're paying would be better spent on hookers and blow.

Tell the drivers that, they are the ones exposed out there.
Breaking News: Lewis Hamilton has officially overtaken The Fonz in race wins. With 88 races less. Lol (Without a specially built blown diffuser, illegal front wing, preferential treatment)

Why do you think RoGro is constantly grinning?
Rising number one of Formula 1, Juan - Juan, one wonders should Juan only win one Formula 1 one year, would Juan have won that one in round one, Juan??

PDVSA better have a lot of money in the Maldonado fund.

Alonso had become a better driver by the middle of his fourth season no?

Want to cheer for this team, but what a tough season. And the thread title doesn't even say support.

Yeah, would like to see the team doing better but I'm not a fan of the drivers.
