Being given respect by their peers must feel as good as a win for the team. Caterham are still a few years from possibly making a podium, but they are doing things properly and improving. The additions made to the team in personnel will help and their driver development program will produce some capable drivers very soon. Glad to see a new team put forth this type of effort and not waver in their commitment to become competitive.

See, actually, Caterham are a few years away from being midfield. They are probably a few decades away from possibly making a podium, and it will probably only happen in a 2005 US GP sort of way.

Fernandes has already said he will be happy with single point this season, I would be surprised if both cars get through to Q2 this season..
