I am not sure what the deal was with this offer from Lotus.
On one hand, he gets his foot in the door with the team.
OTOH, if it didn't come with a contract for next year, he could potentially have nowhere to go in 2014.
And I agree without some time behind the wheel there isn't any way he could fill Kimi's shoes in any appreciable way and would probably look bad compared to Grosjean.
