Toro Rosso technical director James Key has questioned whether the distinctive ‘twin-prong’ nose seen on the Lotus E22 is within the spirit what was intended by the rules. He acknowledged that it appears to have been accepted as legal by the FIA.

“The Lotus nose needs clarification, but it’s a very clever idea,” he said. “The question really is, is it within the spirit? We’ll see. It’s really down to the FIA and Lotus to discuss that obviously. If they run it, then it’s passed the impact test, and they’re happy.”

Circuit of The Americas (COTA) this week welcomed MotoGP rider and native Texan Colin Edwards and Moto2 newcomer Josh Herrin for a Q & A session in advance of their 2014 season.

Edwards and Herrin are two of only three U.S. riders competing in the World Championship this year – the other being Nicky Hayden. The colder than normal temperatures and bone-chilling wind kept Edwards from doing some scheduled COTA track laps.
