Caterham ‘busy’ setting up in Abu Dhabi

Caterham has bucked expectations and arrived in Abu Dhabi for the 2014 finale.

After a two-race absence and with administrators raising money through crowdfunding, scarcely a soul in the Interlagos paddock truly believed the green team would make the trip to the United Emirates Capital.

Indeed, there was still scepticism mere days ago, when the team announced its comeback and signed up Kamui Kobayashi to race.

But on Tuesday at the Yas Marina circuit, Caterham is definitely among the teams busily setting up for the weekend’s racing.

Photos on social media show Caterham staff, although reportedly laid off, arriving through the paddock turnstile.

And the Leafield based team posted photos on Twitter confirming its “busy, busy, busy” efforts to set up the garage.

That is despite the team not yet confirming the identity of Japanese Kobayashi’s teammate.

Another driver apparently out of the running is the talented Dutchman Robin Frijns, who earlier this year was the team’s reserve driver.

He told the racexpress.nl website: “My manager Timo Gans said that I am not driving in Abu Dhabi, but I can’t say anything about it.” (GMM)
