Thumb nose? Naw, brah. It's a tongue nose, according to Formula One's Most Amusing Social Media Team. The Lotus F1 Team recently took photos of the leaked Williams to task for being perhaps the most protrudey of the 2015 probosces and won the Internet by comparing it to cute baby animals.
Cute baby animals are adorbs, right? At first glance, comparing the car to cute baby animals almost looks complimentary, but ooooooh girrrrrrl. You can't just hide that bucket of shade behind cute baby animals and pretend we won't notice.
Meanwhile, Lotus just picked up current GP2 champion Jolyon Palmer as their third driver, which is a huge pick-up for them. He will attend all the races with the team, participate in many practice sessions as well as be on call as their reserve driver. We're hoping that's actually a quiet vote of confidence in the struggling team, who is switching to Mercedes power units next year.
At some point, Lotus needs to back up the smack they talk. Hopefully 2015 is the year.
