Lotus consolidated its position in the constructors’ championship at the British Grand Prix on Sunday with both its drivers finishing in the top ten.

Kimi Raikkonen finished fifth, making up one place from the grid, while teammate Romain Grosjean ended up in sixth, progressing three places up from the start, earning the team 18 points at the end.

But Raikkonen was caught out by a poor start while Grosjean suffered damage on the opening lap which forced the Frenchman to pit for a new front wing and consequently dropped to 22nd by the third lap.

Grosjean however made up ground with a sound strategy by the end of the race at Silverstone.

“I think we’ll only be stronger in the second half of the season and when everything falls into place in qualifying and the race we’ll truly be a force to be reckoned with,” said technical director James Allision.

Team principal Eric Boullier added: “We’re still missing something to get the final piece of the jigsaw, but it’s a nice frustration to have.”
