Heikki Kovalainen confident that Caterham able to fight in F1 midfield this season and Caterham target points finish. The Finn finishes seventh fastest lap-time a head of new Red Bull RB8 in penultimate day at Barcelona.
“I think scoring points is the great goal, but the main aim right now is to join the main pack, the midfield. Whether we have the pace to do that or not, I don’t know yet,” said the 30-year-old Finn.
“Looking at today’s running I’d say we are reasonably close to a lot of people, but I don’t know exactly what they’ve done and they don’t know what we’ve done. We can only guess.
“It looks like Williams is the next one for us and if today [Saturday] we were running the same fuel loads then we are a couple of tenths behind them. I’m not sure if that’s the case or not. We just have to keep working towards that.”
“We’ve found the direction we needed to go in,” he added. “We know where the lazy turn-in is coming from and we ran some modifications for today that were helping – especially on the short runs. We have a new front wing coming for Melbourne, so I think we will make even more progress there.”
