Merc Power for Lotus F1: It's Official!

Yup, Lotus F1 is replacing McLaren by using the Mercedes power unit starting in 2015. Are we getting excited now? After an extremely dismal 2014 campaign there is light at the end of the tunnel (not just in Monaco):

As forum members and F1 fans what do you think?

2007 Exige mental track toy.
2005 Elise.

LOTUS Propulsion news

The Renault engine wasn't getting it done but neither is the Lotus chassis. Those "Silver Arrows" are showing us that. I think that Romain Grosjean is a good driver and only needs a car that works to win but IMHO Pastor Maldonado needs to go back to go-carts and learn to drive. Lotus F1 needs to load shed that kid. He's not ready for prime time. If you have been following the season, it's been embarrassing. Like being a Mets fan!
