Id be lying if i thought it wasnt down to budget, asuming that a days testing costs €300k, and €150k for the build and tear down days, thats €1.2m.
Someone reported that the team has spent €1.2m on getting the factory up and running with the propper grade equiptment.
I think its down to budget and time in equal parts. As it took Virgin/Marussia 3 months to get everything from London, Manor GP and Wirth Research into their HQ at the tail end of last year. It will take Caterham a simmilar ammount of time this year when they go into the old Super Aguri factory. The cost isnt cheap as well, for a move or a start up it will probably be in the region of €5m at the top end.
HRT have done the move in arround 6 weeks with 20 to 30 guys and a few sub contractors as well. I think they are taking the 2 weeks between GPs to try and blitz as much of the move in done as posible and get it done as quickly as they can to an acceptable standard.
Ill give them another 6 to 8 weeks before things are perfect, or acs close to it.
Id recon that closer to the end of the year they will be where they should have been now. They are 6 months behing shedule. If they can get their final updates and the car as good as it can get for Silverstone, id then concentrate on the 2013 car from then, and get a full 12 dsays pre season testing on it next year. Its the only way they can improve if they get a full pre season under them.
