Petroltorque wrote:The Nexus of Caterham's problem is Mark Smith. A technical director of questionable quality. As I understand it the 2013 car is a refinement of the present chassis. Choosing to the Red Bull KERS has always confused me. Its the smallest least reliable unit and designed to not compromise Newey's emphasis on aero. I expect Caterham to be behind Marussia next year. It's worth remembering, were it not for Vergne's stupidity in Brazil, Caterham would have finished outside the top 10.

The difference between Marussia and Caterham was KERS. That was illustrated in the wet of Brazil where the car's were traction limited in the wet.
Williams' improvement was down to Mike Coughlan. A first tier designer not far removed from Newey or Byrne.

You can say that if this sponsors are here to help Caterham, so why didn't they have done that already?
In response i will only say one thing, lack of time, but if we think straight this sponsors have already helped Caterham, in Interlagos, where Petrov finished the race in a respectable 11st place.
