Lotus name dispute ’embarrassing’ – Trulli

Jarno Trulli has denounced as “embarrassing” the F1 naming dispute between his employer and the carmaker Lotus.

The lack of an official or amicable resolution before the start of the 2011 season means the Italian 36-year-old is set to compete this year with Team Lotus against the newly-rebranded Lotus Renault GP.

“Which is the real one?  We don’t know, it’s embarrassing, surreal,” Trulli, a former Toyota driver and race-winner with Renault, told Sunday’s Gazzetta Sportiva newspaper.
