Lotus have reportedly paid "all salaries" to staff amidst rumours of financial trouble at the F1 team.
Earlier this week, Germany's Motorsport-Total reported that the Enstone-based team is "in financial trouble" and fighting for "survival."
The team, the article alleges, is in debt to the tune of €120m ($160m) with salaries paid late and "suppliers and service providers" also not getting their money on time.
One person has recently confirmed he has not been paid on time is Kimi Raikkonen.
"This happened last year, now again so it is not ideal," said the 33-year-old, who is considering a move to Red Bull Racing.
However, according to Lotus all salaries have now been paid up.
A team spokesperson told GPUpdate.net that "all salaries are up to date" while ruling out "any supposed strike threat" from unhappy employees.
