Lotus F1 Team has renewed its Technical Partnership with a global leader in innovation and high-tech engineering consulting, Altran, for the 2014 season.

The partnership was launched in 2013, and built upon Altran’s previous relationship with the team as an engineering and design supplier from 2002 to 2010. The latest partnership will see Altran continue to provide Lotus F1 Team with leading-edge innovation and technological support services through a team of Altran engineers based at Lotus F1 Team’s Enstone base.

Matthew Carter, CEO of Lotus F1 Team:
“Technical Partnerships provide vital support to our engineering endeavours and their continuity and quality represent a key strength of the team’s DNA. The collaboration with Altran has provided invaluable contributions in different moments of the team’s history and we are particularly pleased to see their support being renewed in a moment when a vision for innovation and engineering are more critical than ever.”

Mike Simms, CEO of Altran UK:
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Lotus F1 Team, a relationship that is based on a shared passion for innovation and a relentless desire to stay ahead of the competition. The 2014 season brings with it a raft of new racing regulations, which require all F1 teams to undergo a major change of direction in terms of engineering design and execution. Altran is playing a critical role in enabling Lotus F1 Team to rise to this challenge successfully, and we look forward to an exciting and successful year ahead.”
