Lotus have confirmed that Romain Grosjean will remain at the team next season as part of an unchanged line-up alongside Kimi Raikkonen.

Lotus announced last month that Finn Raikkonen had signed a new one-year deal but at the time made no mention of French driver Grosjean, who produced some impressive displays in 2012 but also made a number of errors in what was his first full campaign in Formula One.

However, the Enstone-based team tonight confirmed the 26-year-old Grosjean, who finished eighth in the drivers' championship after earning podium finishes in Bahrain, Canada and Hungary, would be back racing for Lotus next year.
