Lotus: Will show off their 2013 car this coming Monday

Lotus will become the first Formula 1 team to unveil their 2013 car in a launch event at their Enstone factory to be broadcast live on Sky Sports News on Monday.

The challenger, to be known as the E21, will be revealed to the F1 world eight days before the opening day of winter testing at Jerez, where the car will make its track debut.

The event will take place at 7.15pm UK time, and in addition to the first look at the new car, viewers on Sky Sports News will also be able to watch exclusive interviews and additional content from the launch.

On Wednesday 30th January Sky Sports F1 will then broadcast replays of the event at 7.30pm and 10pm.

The car's unveiling will come three days before what hitherto had been scheduled to be the first car launch of 2013, McLaren's MP4-28.

Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean will again lead Lotus's challenge in 2013 as the team look to build on the progress which saw the former win the Abu Dhabi GP and the team finish fourth in the Constructors' Championship.

The launch event will also be streamed live on Lotus's YouTube channel.
