Last month, it emerged that the Enstone based team was close to a $ 30 million per year deal with Honeywell, hot on the heels of their high profile signing of a sponsor deal with Coca-Cola brand Burn.
But Switzerland’s Speed Week now reports that the Honeywell deal is “still a way off”.
Team boss Eric Boullier is quoted as agreeing: “There is still nothing signed.”
Lotus is scheduled to launch its 2013 car, the Renault-powered E21, on Monday. (GMM)
