Lotus to test double-nosed E22 on Friday

Lotus will not wait until the next official test in Bahrain to get its delayed 2014 car on track.

Having not attended the first test at Jerez, the Enstone team will give its E22 a track debut this Friday and Saturday at the southern Spanish circuit, Italy's Autosprint reports.

Officially, the Lotus outing at Jerez will be for promotional 'filming days' on demonstration Pirelli tyres, allowed under the rules regulating the sport's strict limits on track testing.

But correspondent Roberto Chinchero said the session will actually be a crucial outing for engine supplier Renault, following the Jerez test debacle.

It will also be the first time Lotus' novel asymmetrical, double-pronged nose solution sees the light of day.
