Hmm...., four points. Might be a pile up somewhere where loads of front runners drop like flies. I don't personally see any major improvements.

For some reason I feel HRT are going to pick up the first point, mad I know!

I'm surprised that Caterham are sticking with Green & Gold colour ways for the team. The recognised corperate colours for Caterham have always been White & Red. Would have thought after all the legal fighting over the Lotus brand that Tony Fernandes and co would have wanted to use this as a clean break and move as far away from that mess as possible.

when will these dreamers realise that even if you buy a name you dont buy the heritage? Anyway whats Caterhams racing heritage? a few nut job city boys and solicitors smashing Caterham 7's up at Snetterton? Jeez Id rather buy the Coloni F1 name off of Enzo & Paolo, its got more to do with F1...

Fernandes loves West Ham but buys QPR, get real?

One has to wonder, did they pay good money for the design of that logo?

Online logo creators churn out more visually impressive things. Almost as bad as HRTS effort!

The consensus is to leave the design of your logo open to change so when you get a naming sponsor your logo can be designed to blend with their image, as if being one.

Green white and yellow are classic British racing colors. So this is as simple and neutral as it gets.

Even the Mclaren F1 logo has resemblance to vodafone, ferrari f1's logo is heavily influenced by marlboro, williams and at & t...etc.

@matto3227, wasn't the best known "Caterham" the Seven used in the opening sequence for The Prisoner? That was Green and Yellow (and technically was still a Lotus back then before Caterham bought all the Seven tooling).

No prediction on points till I see the car.

@turnip, just read your uninformed remarks. Geez, read a book or at least wikipedia. Caterham was Lotus' biggest Seven dealer and when Lotus decided to discontinue the Seven Caterham bought all the tooling and rights, and started building their own, first as kits, recently as turn key. And have vastly improved the design over the years. The R500 Superlight did the Top Gear Test Track faster than a Bugatti Veyron, there are whole racing series built around the car, so just because you have no clue, please don't share your cluelessness, it's embarrassing, for you.
Merry Christmas to all.
