Lotus to have Mercedes engines in 2015

Yesterday it was announced that Lotus would be dropping Renault engines and will instead race with Mercedes from 2015. Although many will now presume that Lotus will be more competitive from next year it is surely worth noting that Red Bull have managed to remain competitive with Renault, winning three races this year.

In contrast McLaren, who are in their last year of racing with the Mercedes have not won any races to date this season. It is therefore important to note that unless Lotus have stabilised their technical staff and can build a competitive car they are surely still going to struggle next year, even with Mercedes engines.
