"Jarno Trulli has appeared to struggle for motivation with the new Lotus team in 2010.

"The Italian race-winner has driven for some of the very best and, at Toyota, he was with the team with the biggest budget in F1 - now he's with one of the very smallest.

"When you shut your front door and head off to a grand prix around the other side of the world, you do so knowing exactly what to expect when you arrive.

"I admire him and it was a brave decision. He's doing it for the passion of driving but he's not coped as well as his team-mate Heikki Kovalainen.

"At times, though, Trulli has demonstrated the raw pace we know that he still possesses."
