Eric Boullier is keen for Pirelli to remain in Formula One amidst rumours that Michelin could replace them next season.
Although Pirelli reportedly have contracts with ten of the 11 F1 teams, the Italian tyre manufacturer does not have a deal with the sport's main powers-that-be.
As such the company could be replaced at the end of this season when their three-year contract expires.
Michelin are believes to be waiting in the wings with speculation claiming that the FIA could put out a tyre tender before the end of next month.
However, if Boullier has a say in the matter, the Lotus team boss will be rooting for Pirelli to remain as F1's sole tyre supplier.
"We have Pirelli and we are working with them and we are doing everything that we can to obviously make the package better," the Frenchman told ESPNF1
"It's going to be a complicated winter already and a complicated next year so the less change will maybe be the best."
