Lotus bosses believe they can keep Kimi Raikkonen on the team despite being invited by the very successful Red Bull in recent years. Bike is leaving Mark Webber, which is why they are looking for a decent replacement. This means they probably won’t hire any of their own racer from the Toro Rosso team, but look after the competition where by far the best option shows Kimi Raikkonen.
At Lotus this season, they showed that they would be able to fight for the title, which is why Lopez explains: “We know him very well and we know that he likes us. So it is all up to us to offer him the right material with which he can fight for the highest places. I believe that if we offer him the right material, he will stay with us. ”Let us remember that Kimi was dissatisfied (or not happy enough) with Ferrari, which pushed even Formula One aside, and now with Lotus,“ Ice Finn ”is getting more and more smiling.
Rumors coming from the team say that Kimi is just waiting for the team to provide sufficient funding and of course a competitive race car. In addition, Lopez says that the team is written for him, which is why he is so very happy: “He will have to decide for himself, but here we all really work for him and I believe that we are the best team for him. We have a slightly smaller budget, but we are very competitive compared to Red Bull. "
