Helmut Marko not Sainz has been endeavouring to broker a deal whereby the Gear Box Deal provided by RBR will be forgotten providing Caterham enlist Sainz .

Kobayashi may not be setting the circuit on fire but he drives free of charge.

Doesn't seem fair.

my first thoughts were the fact is he is a red bull protege, then he could hardly be in realistic contact with caterham. but, sorry commo, i cannot see marko trying to get a third tier level in their academy. if they are, it would seem as if red bull want to take over f1, which in my mind would be a catastrophe. sainz would be far better of concentrating on winning the 3.5 championship, and to see where he goes from there.

they already did a similar thing with Ricciardo and HRT, that partnered him up with Liuzzi and within 2 races he was already dominating him(got a feeling they will try compare him to Koby).

True story Richard. Reports say Marko won't succeed with the change of ownership.

Marko has his eye on Sainz to take the seat of JEV 2015

Was always a fan of Sainz Sr but saying he is a 'multiple WRC champ' is a bit of an overstatement. If memory serves me right, he was twice WRC but he came very close to two other WRC's (shouldve won those too...) Then he won Dakar as well. Dont know much of Sainz Jr but wish him the best.
