Keep your eye on Lotus’ third driver



You may also have picked up on recent reports that Jolyon Palmer is the team’s third driver. He’s certainly a person to keep your eyes on.

As reigning GP2 Series champion, he’s the first British driver to win the title since Lewis Hamilton. He won the 2014 GP2 title in record-breaking fashion, with the greatest amount of points scored in a season (276) and the most consecutive points finishes (19).

Palmer will attend all Grands Prix and Formula 1 tests throughout 2015, including driving in a ‘significant number’ of Free Practice 1 sessions, as well as contributing to the car’s testing and development during the season. He will also fulfil the role of reserve driver.

The team’s two drivers, Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado, are also both former GP2 champions.
