Lotus, Marussia's places confirmed

Lotus, Marussia's places confirmed

Issues with Lotus and Marussia's entries into this year's Championship have been resolved.

Earlier this month when the FIA released the entry list for the 2014 F1 World Championship, both teams were marked "subject to confirmation."

However, both Lotus and Marussia were quick to deny that there was any pressing issue that would keep them out of the Championship.

That has now proven to be true.

The FIA confirmed that both teams places on the grid are secure.

Speaking about his team's entry, Marussia team boss John Booth told Autosport: "Yes, it is confirmed.

"We're a small team and we have to manage our cashflow, that's the best way of putting it.

"Sometimes you have to prioritise but we knew it had to be paid and it was paid when we needed it to be."
