Lotus to sign Hulkenberg?

READY TO SIGN: Lotus F1 team has said it will sign Sauber driver Nico Hulkenberg by Thursday for the 2014 season, according to reports. Image: AFP

LONDON, England - A Lotus contract with Nico Hulkenberg's name on it will be signed "either today or tomorrow", the German newspaper Bild has reported.

It was said that the team was poised to sign the 26-year-old German as soon as the deal with Quantum - formerly Infinity, a group of private investors which plans to buy 35% of Lotus - is done.

The Lotus seat has been a hot spot since Kimi Raikkonen was confirmed by Ferrari as Fernando Alonso's new team mate for the 2014 season.


If not, it could have opened the door to Pastor Maldonado. The Mexican's cash-flush sponsor PDVSA is locked in a contract with Williams, but O Estado de S.Paulo correspondent Livio Oricchio said the Venezuelan is desperate to move from uncompetitive Williams.

But Bild reports that Lotus' Quantum deal is finally now being formalised, which should boost the team's budget beyond the equivalent of R2.7-billion for 2014.
