|Lotus F1™ celebrates an amazing race in Brazil and a solid season's performance.|
| The 2012 FIA Formula One™ Championship concluded in Brazil yesterday, in a thrilling battle marking the end of another electrifying and unpredictable F1™ season. As the motorsport menagerie prepares to return home, Lotus celebrates what has been a prolific journey for the team this year.
The Interlagos circuit in São Paulo was the backdrop to a gritty and nail-biting last race, which unfolded in spectacularly dramatic fashion. Despite wet weather playing havoc with race strategy, Lotus ace Kimi Raikkönen put in another gutsy performance at the Brazilian track where just 5 years previous he was crowned 2007 F1™ World Champion. McLaren driver and 2008 F1™ World Champion Lewis Hamilton went head to head with Kimi as both battled furiously contending for third position in the Drivers Championship. A rain soaked and super slippery circuit caused a collision with Force India's Nico Hülkenberg resulting in early retirement for Hamilton in lap 55, securing Kimi the coveted spot. Lotus stable mate Romain Grosjean also succumbed to a greasy track forcing him to bow out disappointingly in lap 6. Never-the-less Romain finished a commendable 8th in the Driver's Championship.
Both results were indicative of Lotus' achievements during this year's competition, where Lotus saw its 80th F1™ win following Kimi's race to victory in Abu Dhabi, and first win with the Enstone based team. Proof the team's plan for the Constructor's Title is well-underway, Lotus F1™ edges closer to the top spot finishing 4th this year, up one place from 2011.
