Team Lotus boss Eric Boullier is confident that the team will be very competitive this season after strong results in the third round of testing last week. He thinks the team will be dicing with McLaren and Red Bull this year.
"What is very encouraging is that even if we believe strongly that they are ahead of us, then the gap last year to this year has been reduced so it shows we can catch up. We obviously need to push more on this but we can close the gap, and it is up to us to do better this year and do even better for next year," said Boullier.
Boullier basically admitted that the team was holding back during testing, and the real racing will not start until Melbourne in about a week.
The team found a problem with the chassis during the second test at Catalunya and had to miss almost the entire round of testing. Despite the flaw, it was able to come back in the third round taking the fastest times in three out of the four days.
