Here, let me correct that for you Eric . . .

"We were unwilling to spend the money to properly update Kimi's car to make it conform with the regulations and therefore put him at the back of the grid where he could get taken out by one of the backmarkers. We don't care about second place as much as we do about reducing the number of points that Kimi scores so that we owe him less at the end of the season. We would much rather see our fellow Frenchman Romain scoring the points now.”

There, fixed that for ya Eric.

It would appear the long awaited deal with Quantum has been finalized, and they promise Kimi and others their money. Hope so, and it's too bad it took this long. The delay ruined their chances of retaining Kimi for next year and almost lost them the opportunity to retain Grosjean or sign the Hulk. Hopefully things take shape quickly now, though I am skeptical....

Eric you said this....

"9 July, 2013 Kimi Raikkonen with Eric Boullier Lotus team principal Eric Boullier has admitted that Kimi Raikkonen's retainer this year was paid late. Earlier sources close to the team revealed that Raikkonen had not been paid his retainer since the beginning of this season. 'It was paid late, yes. But it has been paid. "

Your a liar!

lotus are selling the idea that anything kimi can do, romain can do also. the circuit was supposed to suit the e21 yesterday and a good drive from romain, doing the same number of stops as the others. they should try that tactic with both cars
