Jolyon Palmer to join F1 grid with Lotus in 2016

"I can has F1 seat?" 

"I can has F1 seat?" 

Jolyon (Jo-lee-on) Palmer has been given the nod to drive for Lotus in 2016. The 2014 GP2 champion joins current driver Pastor Maldonado and takes the seat vacated by Romain Grosjean who has joined Team USA sometimes known as Haas F1. 

Its nice to see GP2 drivers graduate to F1 seats, even if sometimes there just aren't enough to go around (sorry K-Mag/Stoff). But congratulations to Jolyon, who will probably have to trade his iPhone for the latest Windows offering. Shuddddder.
