Lotus technical director James Allison has said the team's new car will undergo "significant" changes ahead of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

The E20 made an impressive debut in pre-season testing at Jerez last week, with Kimi Raikkonen topping the timesheets on the opening day before team-mate Romain Grosjean posted the fastest time of the new cars on day three.

However, Allison has stressed that, as will be the case with most of the teams, the Lotus that lines up on the grid in Albert Park next month will have changed markedly.

"The car we take to Melbourne will be significantly different to the one we ran in Jerez," he told the official Lotus website.

"There's a lot of work still to do before the season opener, and so many elements will change; the front wing, rear wing, side pods, pod vanes, engine cover, barge board, floor, some suspension elements, and some small brake duct features to name but a few! As always, it's going to be a very busy few weeks."
