Lotus has been forced to relocate itself in the Sepang paddock after a fire destroyed its hospitality unit overnight.
In the early hours of Saturday morning, a suspected electrical fault in a refrigerator caused a fire that eventually destroyed the team's hospitality unit and kitchen facilities. The team was able to save some of its drivers' uniforms from the private rooms of Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean.
With its unit now out of action, Lotus has been forced to move itself next to Marussia at the bottom end of the Sepang paddock, although its marketing and hospitality staff have been left without any equipment.
The team's engineering operation has been unaffected, as it is based in a separate unit attached to the pit building, and the fire will not have any impact on its track efforts.
