Felipe Massa, who will leave the Ferrari team after ten years of cooperation after the end of this season, has found himself on the list of candidates for the seat of Kimi Raikkonen, who is leaving for Ferrari.

The Lotus team is now one of the best where the racing line-up for next season is not yet known, and Eric Boullier, the Lotus boss, confirmed immediately after the official announcement of Raikkonen's departure that they are already in talks with Nicolas Todt, Felipe Massa's manager. Although Boullier said Hulkenberg is among the most serious options, he added that "Felipe Massa is also available, so it is automatically among the candidates."

Raikkonen's departure from Lotus is also good news for Romain Grosjean, who will most likely extend his contract without any problems. Boullier would like the Frenchman to take the lead in the team. “Raikkonen’s departure can be an advantage for Grosjean, as after two years of development and learning from the world champion, he will be able to show what he has learned. He will be able to gather a team around him and prove on the track that he can be a leader. But he has to finish the season as well as possible, ”added Boullier.
