Gascoyne was moved on to other responsibility's months ago. The Marrusia team haven't even got Kers yet. When they do they'll become another team they'll "never catch "

Gascoyne has been 'promoted away' but was still responsible for this car.

Have been saying since the beginning it was a stupid move to make him chief designer, the man has underperformed for various teams for about a decade now...

As far as I'm concerned, in general.. if it looks great, it performs great. It doesn't cost extra to make a design look nice, thus far Caterhams haven't.

A new livery would be a move forward.. and let me pen the 2014 car.

They just got overtaken by Marussia in the standings and both their drivers are looking to jump ship, one of which potentially to a top team. I'd be panicking as well.

whilst i dont have much regard for caterham, they have only been overtaken in the standings by a run of events in singapore. petrov retired, kovi had to pit (puncture if i remember correctly) and the ability of timo to unlap himself and catch up to the leaders. i stillbelieve that they are the best of the back three, but seeing they are using a race winning engine, they should be doing much better.

They have the same engine, gerarbox, hydraulics and KERS as Red Bull, do they not?
I was really hoping for more this season. and it will hurt to lose Heikki for next season.
