Kovalainen waiting for Caterham principal Tony Fernandes decision



Heikki Kovalainen says that he is waiting for current team head Tony Fernandes decision for they will be holding him for 2013.

The Finn joined this sport as a full-time F1 test driver for 2006 in Renault, and then promoted him to a race seat for 2007, following two year he was working with McLaren. The Finn joins with Team Lotus in 2010 and 2011, before its rebranding to Caterham.

“At the moment there is no movement, I’m waiting on what Tony wants to do,” Kovalainen told Autosport.

“He has different options and has to decide what route he wants to take with drivers. The fact is, I don’t bring money and I get paid. Whether that’s the deciding factor or not, I don’t know.

“We still have a good relationship. I’ve been with him for a long time already and I trust him 100 per cent. But at the same time, I need to keep my eyes open in case he wants to go the other way.”

“No, not really,” he said when asked if there are no alternatives if he doesn’t stay at Caterham. The main thing now is to keep the focus, drive the car as fast as I can and keep pushing the team.

“That is what I’m paid to do and we will see what happens next year. Hopefully, we can resolve it sooner rather than later.”
