Haas not looking at Lotus

A source close to F1's newest team owner Gene Haas has denied reports linking the Californian with Lotus.

Amid rumours Enstone based Lotus is struggling to pay its Renault engine bill in 2014, it was suggested in the Barcelona paddock that Haas was set to visit Lotus' UK headquarters this week.

It triggered speculation Haas, 62, may have listened to the critics and acknowledged that basing his new team in the United States might not be a good idea.

But according to Motorsport.com, a 'top Haas Formula official' denied the Sky Sports report.

"He (Haas) is not looking at Lotus," the source said, adding that Haas is travelling to Europe but not on F1-related business.
