Grosjean jumps gun on Lotus announcement


Lotus appear to be close to announcing Romain Grosjean for the 2015 season after the Frenchman tweeted he is staying before deleting it.

The Enstone-based squad have made no secret of the fact that they want to retain Grosjean, who admitted at Interlagos over the weekend that both parties are close to concluding a deal.

The 28-year-old took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce he is “Proud to announce I’ll be racing with@Lotus_F1Team in #2015” but it was deleted quickly afterwards.

Lotus have already confirmed Pastor Maldonado for the 2015 campaign.
