Boullier denies teams to run third cars in 2015

There have been rumors suggesting that teams will run three cars in 2015.

Sep.9 (GMM) Eric Boullier has dismissed suggestions top F1 teams will have to run three cars next year to plug vacancies on the grid.

I think he's being a bit provocative

Eric Boullier on Adam Parr's comments

Amid suggestions some teams are struggling to survive, former Williams chairman Adam Parr issued a head-turing tweet within minutes of the end of Sunday's Italian Grand Prix.

When asked about Parr's intervention on Tuesday, McLaren team boss Boullier responded: "I think he's being a bit provocative."

The Frenchman did, however, acknowledge that some teams are in financial difficulty after budgets went "through the roof" over the last decade.

"So there is potentially a couple of teams which may suffer (because) of this and I don't know if they will still be on the grid.

"But I don't think we'll go to eight teams and three cars per team next year and definitely not at such short-term notice," said Boullier.
