F1 Belgian Grand Prix: New nose for Caterham at Spa

Caterham will have a new nose as it brings updates to the Belgian Grand Prix in a push to regain 10th place in the constructors' championship.

While Sauber is currently 10th in the constructors' championship having yet to score a point, Caterham also has Marussia – with two points so far this season – in its sights as it attempts to finish in the top ten of the standings having dropped to 11th in 2013. New general manager and deputy team principal Manfredi Ravetto has confirmed that part of the development push will see a new nose introduced alongside a number of other updates at Spa.

"The new nose is part of a package of innovations we are bringing to Spa as a demonstration of how we are trying to revive our performance, even if we are restructuring the team and living difficult days from which we hope to emerge soon," Ravetto told Omnicorse.

"The changes in Belgium are, in fact, just the beginning - the most important things you will see later.”

The updated car is likely to be driven by Andre Lotterer and Marcus Ericsson, with Lotterer set to replace Kamui Kobayashi at Spa this weekend.
