1391551_642521669111798_1222925414_nLotus F1 team principal Eric Boullier says that, Lotus F1 Team is pretty hot property at the moment, as the team find new speedy to replace Kimi Raikkonen.

The Finn go-back to Ferrari for 2014 F1 season, obviously the hot seat available at Lotus, also Boullier confirms that Grosjean stay at team for 2014.

“There are no announcements yet but there is plenty going on behind the scenes,” Boullier said.

“We know that Kimi is headed elsewhere for next season, but we also know that Romain would bring good continuity as well as the strong performance potential we’ve seen recently.”

“There are a number of other good drivers on the market at the moment, so we’re in a strong position of being able to assess the possibilities. A race seat with Lotus F1 Team is pretty hot property at the moment, so we’re confident we’ll have a strong line-up in 2014.”

“It’s true we’ve had a few people leave in 2013, but we’ve also been recruiting ourselves. There’s been quite a lot of movement recently; not just within Enstone, but between other teams too. It’s part of the sport and always has been.

“The strength of our technical department can be seen by the successful introduction of the long wheelbase E21. This change was driven by a new approach to how we develop the car and it’s been a valuable proof of concept as we look to develop next year’s model. I’m confident we can continue our recent run of form and improvement next year.”
