Not looking good for the long term survival of Lotus.
They have a lot of problems to overcome. I agree, it doesn't look good. Most of the Lotus debt is to Genii, so I guess it's only paper debt. But they've lost engineers and a driver and who knows how good the replacements are? It's hard to see them matching last season's competitiveness without having more than just adequate funding.
