SEPANG, Malaysia - Lotus showed it is ready to be a regular Formula One points contender, as it shook off a dismal start to the season with an encouraging performance at Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix. The team may have come away from the race empty-handed and having suffered yet another engine failure with Pastor Maldonado car, but Romain Grosjean finished just one place out of the points in 11th and would likely have taken 10th if not for diffuser damage in the closing laps.
