Caterham F1 History

Caterham F1 History

Team Lotus T127 car

2010 F1 season Team Lotus T127 car

Bernie Ecclestone’s ambitious plan in 2009 to introduce four new teams for the 2010 season has back fired considerably. American Racing didn’t make the start grid and when HRT pulled out following the 2012 season just two new teams remained.

Of those two Caterham are the more successful but their brief stint in the sport has not been easy and they are still yet to pick up a point. The team is owned by Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes who originally named the team Lotus F1 after acquiring the name from the company, Lotus.

When that contract was terminated he re-branded it to become Team Lotus and then a year later, Caterham. The teams F1 career has so far been spent fighting to avoid coming last. They have had the benefit of experienced drivers Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli, but with the credit crunch hitting F1 hard, they, like many, have been forced to seek pre-paid drivers.

This has left the team even further away from procuring their first championship point. And in a sport where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer it is unlikely that the team will be appearing at the front, or even in the midfield, any time soon.

There is an argument that the sport would be better off without the slow teams at the back. Whether or not that is true, they probably wouldn’t be missed yet. But the battle between Caterham and Marussia usually proves to be entertaining. Marussia have had the upper hand in recent years, and with a lot of cost cutting going on at Caterham that is unlikely to change soon.
