Not exactly. Group Lotus claim that because Fernandes violated their licencing agreement, they no longer wish to be associated with him. And while Team and Group Lotus are two separate entities, their names are very similar. Group Lotus feel that because of that similarity, Fernandes is essentially trading on their name; it would be like there were two teams named McLaren or two teams named Ferrari. If the courts rule in favour of Group Lotus, it is likely that Fernndes will have to stop using the Team Lotus name.
