Grosjean will keep the seat - Boullier and Total will not allow that to happen.

Nowadays in F1, money talks. And Grosjean is not really that bad of a driver either.

wasn't there a rumor that Total is having a safety driving campaign and Groggy's driving isn't exemplary?

Grosjeans problem is that he cost Lotus 100 points. Looking at an another case, when McLaren cost Lewis 100 points this year he promptly dropped the team. So maybe Lotus should drop the driver.

Anyway, they could hire Koba and give Kova the 2nd test pilot seat.

But, as I prefer stability my vote in the poll went to Grosjean :-)

So has Grosjean "Really" changed his driving ways??

This is the big question, but for me personally i don't see Grosjean eliminating his silly driving errors and style at all.

Well, yeah, without a team a pilot would be just walking instead of driving, but you get my meaning.

Yeah I get what you mean. I just like to think Mclaren built a car that won Lewis several races and put him in the fight for the WDC again. That's not a guaranteed thing and he'll learn that the hard way next season I think. But enough of this off topic :)

Boullier has nothing to say here. If Lopez will say NO then it means NO. If some title sponsor will say bring Koba for additional few millions he will drop Grosjean the very same day.

Tbh Lopez is GREAT at owning the team, bringing new sponsors, hiring great driver, bringing cash to the team, making it develop. I believe he will ditch Grosjean like there is no tomorrow if he will have better driver, and if they really will have Honeywell as titular sponsor, they rather won't car about TOTAL money as much as now (+ I beleive Total will sponsor them anyway)
