Lotus confident of legality

Lotus are confident the unique design of their twin-tusk nose is in accordance with the FIA regulations.

Earlier this week, Lotus' new E22 made its on-track debut when it put in its first laps at the Bahrain circuit.

The car stood out from the rest due to the unique twin-tusk tip of the nose.

But despite being different from the rest, Lotus technical director Nick Chester says the car is legal.

"The nose certainly is quite interesting!" he said. "It has generated a lot of talk.

"We think it's a nice solution and it's quite innovative.

"Naturally, as with any interpretation of new regulations, we've talked with the FIA to ensure that they are happy with the design.

"It's nice to have something a little bit different and we're happy with our path having seen what everyone else is doing with their cars in this area."
