Pre-season testing is yet to begin, but Caterham already have a fixed idea about where in the constructors’ standings they want to end the year. As their 2012 car was officially unveiled online on Thursday morning, chief technical officer Mike Gascoyne made it clear that the team are optimistic of stepping into the midfield with the help of the newly-launched CT01.
Until we run the car, we only have numbers and simulation data to work with, Gascoyne said in an interview with the team, published on their official Facebook page. But every team wants to move up the grid and we’re no different. We finished 10th in the last two years, which has been our target, but now I think it’s time we moved forward again.
