Improvement, points, catching mid field teams, Q2, Q3,

Heard all this for 3 years now, why not achieve the points then crow about it.

After all Caterham have been in F1 for 3 years without a single point, their drivers have had opportunities to get in the points and blew it cant see any change coming soon,

One thing is a constant with Caterham , the PR dribble keeps rolling along

I think Kovalainen will leave after this season. Hopefully his race pace is better than at Mclaren. He seems kinda slow in some races(when compated to Petrov), but then again he is driving a Caterham. Seems like they have some part malfunction in almost every race.

I always have and will believe in Caterham all the way.

They have actually significantly improved this season. If you think the nearest car to them on performance is probably the Toro Rosso, Force India and Ferrari. Look how competitive those cars have been.

Kovalainen has broken into Q2 twice in 9 races so far in 2012. However, unlike before, these have been pretty much on merit. He came oh so close in Monaco too.

In Monaco and Valencia they were not far from the points, but for a few problems. They still got 13th place finishes in those races.

Unfortunately I do feel though that Kovalainen may have run out of patience, and WILL leave if he gets a good chance somewhere else.

I wonder if he's under consideration for the Ferrari seat, or whether it'll go to di Resta. I think di Resta!

If he goes, who's gonna lead Caterham? I think it could be Felipe Massa. I reckon he could have a Heinz-Harald Frentzen 1999 style renaissance if he does!
