Boullier: Kimi loves Lotus

Boullier: Kimi loves Lotus

Eric Boullier is confident Lotus will retain Kimi Raikkonen for next season as the Finn "loves" the team.

Although Raikkonen has been linked to a move away to Red Bull Racing, his manager Steve Robertson says that is definitely out as negotiations were "not successful and ended some time ago."

However, Red Bull aren't the only team reportedly interested in the 2007 World Champion as there is some speculation that Ferrari are also chasing his signature.

Boullier, though, believes that when all is said and done, Raikkonen will once again be racing for Lotus.

"Yes I am," Boullier told Sky Sports when asked if he was confident of retaining Raikkonen for 2014.

"He loves the team, he likes to be here, he likes the environment we have created for him.

"Kimi is clearly an exceptional racer - his race pace is amazing and he can deliver from whatever position he is on the grid and work his way forward.

"So this is mainly due to him, but also the strong ability of the car."
