Team Lotus buys Caterham…
Keen to add to the great pantheon of F1 driver ‘happy’ emoticons, Heikki Kovaleinen celebrated his paymasters buying Caterham Cars with a spot of donuting.
Team Lotus - currently locked in a battle with Lotus-Renault to use the name Lotus - acquired the small British carmaker last week with Big Plans to ‘expand its brand profile and product family’.
They made a film celebrating their purchase, which looks all broody and cool and modern, showing a Seven in detail. You can see it here.
Or you can watch below to see a rather more different type of celebration as Heikki rags a Seven. Like watching a mildly angry radio-controlled car.
