Lotus on Monday said Kimi Raikkonen is staying with the team in 2013.

Team boss Eric Boullier said after the Indian grand prix that Romain Grosjean "has his place" with the Enstone based team, despite his sometimes tumultuous 2012 season.

Now, it appears Finn Raikkonen, the 2007 world champion who returned to F1 this year after a world rallying foray, is also definitely staying.

Lotus posted a video on Youtube that said at the end: "Kimi Raikkonen and Lotus F1 team in 2013. The story continues."
