Gentlemen start your launches! The Caterham (formerly Team Lotus) CT-01 has been shown online and today in print (F1 Magazine) and features a rather strange nose. Its the first car from the Norfolk team to feature KERS as well as what they describe as “aggresive” aerodynamics. It certainly looks a lot more innovative than previous cars and sports the same livery as last year without the massive words Caterham on the sidepods:
On the otherhand Marussia have announced they wont be at the first test at all in Jerez and will show up to the second test (the 1st in Barcelona) to run the 2011 car primarily for Charles Pic to get some mileage and we’d expect little running from Timo Glock. It could be viewed nowadays that they couldn’t get a well funded 3rd driver to cover some expenses and split some more track time between him and Pic.
