Lotus to use Mercedes engines in 2015

It isn’t yet official but many F1 sources and those in the know are certain that in 2015, Lotus will switch from Renault engines to those made by Mercedes.

The move comes after a poor season so far not only for the Lotus team who have only scored eight points in the first nine races, but also for the Renault powered teams in general, they have been unreliable and not particularly quick either whereas Mercedes powered teams have benefitted this year from the german engines, with Mercedes domination and the impressive performances of teams such as Williams and Force India.

Renault recently came in for some heavy criticism from Red Bull boss Christian Horner after the retirement of Sebastian Vettel in Austria labelling their engine woes as ‘unacceptable’ and now it looks as though Lotus have had enough as well and will become the fourth Mercedes powered team on the grid in 2015.
