Amid suggestions some teams are struggling to survive, former Williams chairman Adam Parr issued an alarming 'tweet' within minutes of the end of Sunday's Italian grand prix.
He announced: "In 2015 eight teams will contest the championship, with several teams entering three cars."
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.
