The Lotus F1 team has completed their deal with Quantum Motorsports. This deal has been one of the most covered stories of the season, as the deal will secure the financial future of the team for the next five years. Now that the deal is done, it is expected that Nico Hulkenberg of Sauber will be signed as Kimi Raikkonen's replacement at the team for 2014. Team principal Eric Boullier has had his eye on the German for some time, and said that his signing hinged on the completion of the deal with Quantum, which gives a minority stake of the team to the company. This also means that the services of Raikkonen are guaranteed for the final two races.
