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.
