Lotus expects to stay with Renault in 2014

Team owner Gerard Lopez thinks it is likely Lotus will stay with Renault power beyond 2013.

Next year, F1 is switching to all-new and more expensive turbo V6 engines, and Luxembourger Lopez admitted Lotus is yet to sign a new Renault contract for 2014.

"However, it's no secret that we have a close relationship with them," he told the French magazine F1i.

"In my opinion, there will be no surprises," added Lopez.
