Don't know about "risky move", it was and remains your only option to stay in F1. What happens from here is down to other people's decisions and out of your hands unfortunately.!! Life's a Bitch and then you work for one!!

Caterham are easily on the level of say Tyrrell, Arrows and Minardi in the mid-90s. Therefore, there's something not quite right with F1 if this team can't even have a CHANCE of scoring points.

(I think it's the super-reliability and even worse, no gravel traps so the drivers now get away with murder and simply rejoin the track, whereas it would be game over in the past)

With the amount of criticism they, Marussia and HRT get on here, you'd think they were talking about Eurobrun, Coloni and Pacific...

Kovalainen deserves to be fighting for points, podiums and wins. I hope Caterham can succeed without him, cos they certainly look like they're getting the better end of the deal. What about Adrian Sutil if Massa's not interested?

Caterham aren't that far off the likes of Torro Rosso now. They still have a chance to some points this season, but it may not be until the new engines are brought in that they catch the midfield up completely.

I personally think Heikki should stay and continue to improve the car, they've come this far.. Seems a waste of time if you don't even get the car to a points scoring position.
