LRGP Eric Boullier has said that FIA confirmation of the change to the Lotus chassis name for 2012 is good for the sport, since it removes ambiguity – and he adds that it starts a new chapter for the Enstone team.
The three teams involved in name changes had not commented on last Thursday’s meeting pending official approval, which came through today.
“We are very pleased that our chassis name change has been approved,” said Boullier in a team statement. “We have said all along that, in the interests of the sport, it is important that we remove any ambiguity on this matter. It is also important that there are clearly identifiable teams on the grid, and today’s announcement goes some way towards ensuring that.
“It is the start of another chapter for Enstone, but not a whole new beginning. The team’s history and experience will allow us to take up this challenge with a controlled and swift process. We’re very much looking forward to 2012.”
