The Lotus Saga For Dummies

Once upon a time, there was a car company called Lotus and they allowed a F1 team to us the Lotus name. However, Lotus decided to do F1 for themselves and tried to make Lotus change their name. Lotus didn’t want to do this so they slightly changed their name. This made Lotus mad and they decided to take Lotus to court. Lotus won the case and were allowed to keep the Lotus name but then decided they didn’t want to be called Lotus after all and changed their name again. This all made Lotus very happy! Now they could call their cars Lotus from the start of the 2012 season. After two races, Lotus decided they didn’t want to be in F1 anymore and stopped sponsoring the Lotus team. Even though Lotus aren’t sponsoring Lotus anymore, they are still called Lotus and intend to keep the Lotus name.

The end…..
