Caterham targets scoring point in 2012 F1



Caterham team boss Tony Fernandes says that Caterham want to score a point this year and that really has to be the target.

2011 Team Lotus (Now known Caterham) made top in back runners list as a result that they are closed gap to the mid-runners. Tony added that the adding up of KERS fixed with a growing team means that scoring at least one point had to be the next targets.

“Target wise, I have been quoted as saying I want us to score a point this year and that really has to be the aim. It has to be,” Fernandes told the Caterham F1 website. “Towards the end of last year we were so close to the midfield cars, but our lack of KERS limited our capabilities.

“This year, however, with the people and facilities we have in the factory and the wind tunnel, and with KERS, I am confident that we will become a danger to many of the midfield teams, and yes, I want us to achieve a point somewhere in 2012 – maybe two if we are very lucky!”

“Personally I love this car, and it’s very flattering that people want to talk about our car and our team, but the main consideration is that it is quick. As long as it is quicker than last year’s car I don’t think the looks matter, and I am sure that when all the other cars are unveiled we will see a pretty common thread running through all of them. I actually think it’s beautiful. It’s different, and different does not equal ugly – in fact I think its difference is what makes it beautiful, but then I am probably a bit biased.”
