"We are very pleased to have Alexander as part of our Program. He has a strong racing CV and win percentage and has already achieved some significant results including the 2008 Formula BMW World Championship. Alexander is the most senior of the drivers in the Program with a lot of experience at several top levels of racing. We at the AirAsia Team Lotus Driver Development Program have high expectations and belief in him, which is highlighted by his involvement in today’s run in the Team Lotus F1 car." March 2011

"Alexander did a good job today. He made no mistakes and got straight down to business. I spent most of the day driving around the outside of the circuit watching him and he showed a lot of confidence in the car."

"We were very impressed with Alexander today. He got down to a competitive lap time very quickly and his feedback was good. He didn't make a mistake and by the afternoon it felt like a normal test day and he did not give us the impression as a rookie. He was able to help us with some aerodynamic work as well, so it was a useful day for the team."
