Lotus this week announced that Kimi Raikkonen is staying at the team beyond this month's Interlagos finale, but that has only intensified speculation about Frenchman Grosjean's future.

The 26-year-old's place at Lotus has been in doubt amid his tumultuous 2012 season, including the Monza race ban, but team boss Eric Boullier has hinted recently that Grosjean is staying.

"I think the team and I are happy together," Grosjean told the French language

"They have put a lot of trust and faith in me, even in difficult times. I see no reason why it will go wrong for the future," he added in Abu Dhabi.

In another interview with Russia's, however, Grosjean admitted: "I cannot tell how events will develop. It's better if you ask Eric."
