The Lotus E21 was a Formula One racing car entered by Lotus for the 2013 Formula One season. It was the twenty-first car to be built by the Enstone team, and the second under the Lotus F1 brand. It was driven by Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean, both of whom were retained from the 2012 season, and Heikki Kovalainen who replaced Räikkönen at the final two races of the season.

The E21 was launched online on January 28, 2013.[1] It also won the season opener at Australia, and would be the team's last victory under the Lotus name. The team secured two double podiums at Bahrain, Germany and Korea.
