Romain Grosjean has stated that he is likely to remain at the Lotus F1 Team in 2015. The Frenchman has yet to confirm what his plans are for next season but is waiting to find out what Fernando Alonso's plans are for next season aswell of Sebastian Vettel who are key to the 2015 driver market.

Grosjean stated that he did not Sebastian Vettel leaving Infiniti Red Bull Racing coming but feels that Alonso still holds the key to the 2015 driver market.

Speaking about next season the Frenchman said that there are big changes happening at Enstone for 2015, the main one being that the outfit will use a supply of Mercedes power units having used Renault power since 1995. Grosjean admitted 'it's not a bad place to be.'

Grosjean has been with the Enstone based outfit since joining Kimi Raikkonen at the team in 2012. Grosjean believes that next season the Lotus F1 Team can do what the Williams Martini Racing Team this season and turns things around.

The Lotus F1 Team have really struggled this season and have scored just eight points this season which Grosjean has scored when he finished both the Spanish and Monaco Grand Prix in eighth place respectively. For the next race in Austin Texas, the team will trial a new front nose which they plan to use on next seasons E23.
