Boullier denies that he has resigned from Lotus
15 December, 2013
Lotus was a team in turmoil throughout 2013, and although they have signed well funded Pastor Maldonado to join Romain Grosjean in the team, times remain tough which recently prompted reports that Team Principal Eric Boullier is on his way out, which the Frenchman has denied.
Boullier wrote on Twitter: “Dear followers, I have never received any offers and I have not resigned from Lotus F1. Thanks for your support.”
Lotus have been plagued with lack of funding which ultimately resulted in Kimi Raikkonen’s premature departure from the team due to no payment for his services.
Meanwhile a dubious investment deal with a consortium led by Mansoor Ijaz of Quantum Motorsport has gone awry amid reports of late payment of staff at the Enstone headquarters in the UK. (GP247)
