Lotus 2014 Financing Secure

According to this Autosport article, the financial troubles that plagued the Lotus F1 team in 2013, should be behind them in the upcoming season. Of course, rumors plagued the team throughout much of last season, as reports surfaced late in the season that top driver Kimi Raikkonen was not paid.

Although Raikkonen has moved on to Ferrari for whom he won the 2007 World Drivers' Championship, a financial windfall has come to Lotus the form of Venezuelan driver Pastor Maldonado, who has significant backing from PDVSA. Maldonado joins Romain Grosjean who teamed with Raikkonen in 2012 and 2013.
