The 1989 Lotus 101 And The Relevance Of Formula 1 Duds

Lotus is a name synonymous with Formula 1 racing. It’s as embedded in the story of the world’s premiere motorsport as any other successful constructor’s, and indeed it could be said that it is a vital part of the series’ DNA, and of motor-racing’s DNA more broadly. With multiple Grand Prix world champions driving Lotus cars, never mind Indianapolis successes and triumphs at Le Mans, the technical innovations that the constructor bought to the sport are among the most important and enduring. If you look at the significant innovations in Formula racing, you’ll find that many came out of Lotus workshops, such as hip-mounted radiators, overhanging rear wings, and monocoque chassis. All are still a huge part of a modern Formula car’s skeleton.
