What Is This Book About?


The original Team Lotus, i.e. the one that competed within F1 between 1958 to 1994 carries so much affection for F1 fans. During their existence within F1, Motorsports highest category, the team started almost 500 races and won multiple world championships. However during the 1990’s serious financial problems brought an end to Team Lotus. It was a huge pity given their rich history. But how did they get to that point in the first place? This book guides readers and listeners through all of Team Lotus’ races from 1983 to the end of the 1989 F1 Season in order to seek answers. It details Team Lotus’ performances throughout each one of those races, whilst providing analysis for every season covered.


Was the loss of their founder Colin Chapman the blow that killed them?


Were Senna’s & Piquet’s demands too much?


Or were they just gradually eaten up by leaner, meaner teams during F1’s expensive turbo era?
