Although the number 1 gave no problems, the team announced through a statement today that the problem requires an amendment to both chassis.

This morning, in a circuit where higher speeds are reached in Jerez, Lotus technicians detected a defect in the chassis-2 that made them stop testing for security reasons. In the afternoon we decided to desist from further testing for the rest of the week.

Technical Director James Allison gave some more information on the problem: “Before we were due to fly chassis E20-01 out to Barcelona in replacement of chassis E20-02 - damaged this morning - we ran a series of simulations at the factory based on the data provided by our brief running on track today," said the Briton.

"As a result, we were able to identify an area which requires some additional work. It will be more productive for us to carry out these modifications to both chassis at Enstone rather than send E20-01 out to this week’s test. We’ll put the right measures in place and we will be able to fix the problem before next week.”

Eric Boullier, Team Principal of Lotus F1 commented on the team's decision: “Not running this week has been a tough decision to take, but we feel that our choice is the right one," he said. "On the positive side, we have quickly identified the issue with the chassis and our design office has already devised a solution. We will be present at next week’s test in Barcelona. We draw faith from the fact that the E20 was quick out of the box in Jerez and showed its reliability there. We have a lot of work ahead of us over the next week but everyone at Enstone is ready for this challenge.”
