Finally the Team Named Lotus for 2012 get a race victory ( OK Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes Engine giving up talking to the rest of the McLaren helped ) . And provided two of the best quotes of the day , ' Don't bother me, I know what I'm doing'. as he increased the lead over the following Ferrari of Alonso. A couple of safety cars bunched things up a bit towards the end , allowing Vettel to pass Button for Third.

The current Lotus team has its roots in Witney , Oxfordshire as successor to Toleman/Bennetton/Renualt of past F1 seasons, with the more traditional Lotus of the past now more reflected in Caterham , whom have yet to finish beyond 13th in a 2012 F1 race.
