If Caterham really wants Kovalainen back, it will be tough to fire van der Garde right now, although it might be that they planned that on beforehand of the season (Since Tony F. said they didn't want to spend much money this year and use more for 2014).

Since van der Garde overcame his Rookie inexperience (or Pic lost his experience advantage) he looks sharper, faster and more appreciated by the team (reading the radio messages) than Pic, although missing out on the last two FP1's. Add two Q2 qualifications vs. zero, and I think VDG proved to be much more then just a paydriver.
