Lotus name Charles Pic as third driver
Lotus F1 Team have named former Caterham and Marussia driver Charles Pic as their third driver for the 2014 season. The 24-year-old Frenchman, who started 39 Grand Prix, will conduct simulator work at the Enstone squad’s factory, whilst also providing support at races.
I am very excited to join a top team and Lotus F1 Team have certainly shown that they are a top team in this sport. – said Pic – It’s a great honour for me and I will be working hard to give my best to the team throughout 2014. Obviously, the big change is that I won’t be racing in Formula One, but I will be at the races and working in meetings which will help me develop and progress as a driver…
Joining Pic at Lotus is 23-year-old Dane Marco Sorensen, who will act as a reserve and development driver alongside Nicolas Prost.
