Should he stay or should he go? // Lotus boss expects Romain Grosjean to remain with team

Published by Christine

Romain has a clause that enables him to leave the team based on results not being achieved by the team. It's the case this year - we're not within the boundaries fixed by his contract. He would be free to go if he wants to go.

- Gerard Lopez, CEO Lotus F1 Team

I properly love this quote. Just the honesty of it. Lopez says he doesn't expect any change in the team's driver line-up for 2015, but that actually Grosjean does have the ability to leave if he wants to.

That makes sense because, well, if the performance part of the contract wasn't being breached at this point, you'd have to guess it could only read "must turn up to all races."
