The logo of team boss Tony Fernandes' AirAsia airline could soon feature on the 2010 Lotus car.
We reported last month that because the logos are already seen prominently on Williams' FW32, Fernandes was instead content to advertise his investment firm Tune Group on the green T127.
But according to a report in Finland's leading newspaper Turun Sanomat, the situation might be different when the heavily updated cars emerge from the pits in Barcelona next week.
The report said the AirAsia logo "will be displayed" on the Lotus in Spain.
Meanwhile, we also reported in March that the logos of the Brazilian oil company Petrobras might be added to the T127's livery in Barcelona.
But Turun Sanomat said the deal has not been done in time to debut at the Spanish Grand Prix.
