Caterham has announced that it will launch its 2014 F1 car, the CT04, on January 28, the opening day of the Jerez test.

"Quite a few questions coming in about when we'll launch the 2014 car and our test plans, so... We'll be at all three tests, in Spain (T01) & Bahrain (T02 / T03) & we'll unveil the 2014 car on the morning of T01 day one, 28 Jan," the team said via Twitter.

"More news to follow on other items as soon as we can!"

Caterham has still to confirm its drivers for the new campaign with several candidates having been linked to the Leafield-based squad, including last year's peddlers, Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde, as well as former pilot and tester Heikki Kovalainen (who of course did the final two events with Lotus at the end of 2013 standing in for Kimi Raikkonen), as well as ex-Sauber man Kamui Kobayashi and also GP2 runner Marcus Ericsson.

Caterham is the third team to set a launch date for its new car, following on from McLaren and Mercedes, the latter will also unveil its new machine on January 28.
