Boullier denies quit reports

Eric Boullier has quashed speculation that he has stepped down as Lotus team principal.

Sport Bild and F1 Racing's Anthony Rowlinson both claimed over the weekend that several sources have informed them the Frenchman has left his post at the Enstone squad.

Although the team finished fourth in the Constructors' Championship thanks to Kimi Raikkonen's excellent early season form and Romain Grosjean's good end to the season, things haven't been easy for them.

Raikkonen decided to rejoin Ferrari after the team failed to pay him while it was public knowledge that they were struggling financially. They have since signed some sponsorship agreements while Pastor Maldonado - and his PDVSA money - has been confirmed as the second driver for 2014.

Rumours, though, refused to go away and, in fact, intensified over the weekend.

However, Boullier has thrown water on the flames by taking to social media networking.

"Dear followers, I have never received any offers and I have not resigned from LF1," he tweeted. "Thanks for your support."
