I don't think they're developing - more solving their problems. There was inevitably going to be a period where the teams that were in trouble at the beginning of the season caught up.
However Lotus did lose TD in the middle of preparation for this season, they also lost a lot of engineers afterwards and they never had a lot of money. And still they either designed better car than Mclaren or outdeveloping them.
My personal opinion based on results of two last years is that Tim Goss is mediocre TD. He was good at his previous position but back then his work was controlled by Paddy Lowe.
