Caterham has revealed that it intends to stick with developing the current CT01 car into next season, rather than make any fundamental shifts ahead of new regulations in 2014.

Makes a great deal of sense for teams with limited budgets and Caterham have surely lead the way on this. With new regulations for 2014 even the tops teams will not want to be spending huge amounts of money on something that will be redundant at the end of the season. As for HK leaving I have not noticed a huge clamour for his services elseware and my guess is if he does leave he will go the way of other Ex F1 drivers and end up with no regular drive.

I thought they were supposed to be lowering the front of the monocoque to remove the unsightly "broken nose" look?

Developing the car makes sense otherwise, bearing in mind all the bodywork has the potential to be upgraded.

HK and Glock are out of position IMHO, but that's more to do with the cash offered by drivers to higher ranked teams and their salary requirements.
