As Ferrari announced the arrival of Kimi Raikkonen focus swiftly turned to Lotus who has what they consider βthe most desirable team on the grid with a seat availableβ.
Team boss Eric Boullier said βWe are currently in discussion with a few people and will make a decision shortly, we are in the privileged position of being the most desirable team on the grid with a seat available, so we are therefore in no rush to announce anyone without establishing what will be the best for our team and the future.β
