On December 19th, 2013:
As rumours the Frenchman is fleeing the financially troubled Enstone based team flourished on the internet, Boullier took to his personal Twitter account to issue a short denial.
Eric Boullier wrote: "It's not just that I had to defend myself to the outside, I had to get together my people in the factory and tell them that there's nothing to it. Rumours spread quickly in a racing car factory."
...
"But they should know that I'm still here and I'm not going anywhere"
I would like to see a paleontologist.

And? What's your point? Denial was about Force India move at the time. Are you suggesting that it was McLaren deal mistaken for the one to Force India?

Maybe at the time he was still there and wasn't going anywhere and on 24th of January (or realistically earlier) it changed.

The rumors last year was he was coming back, then it was determined he was staying at MaCa. I hope he does come back to the reds.
