Caterham CT-03 Renault

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

If it was one piece i can´t see why you would put a spring there.

Looks cool though.
It's actuated by the hydraulic force from the other dampers on the car, it's not damping/connecting the sidepod and floor.

In fairness they've had plenty of time to work on it, from about the 5th race it was clear they were comfortably ahead of Marussia and nowhere near Williams.

This is nothing weird, they were first or second last year and same year before that :wink: Maybe it's suprising because of year 2014, but bigger teams usually waits because of devolopment this year cars. They spend much more time in wind tunnel, spend bigger resources then smaller teams, and have time to choose right devolopment program for different chassis.

The sound of the naturally aspirated V8 Renault has been heard for the last time late at night in Brazil officially signing off the V8 era of Formula 1:

I must email Caterham! I wonder if they'll sell the wing as a set with the beam, as it'll be a piece of history (due to the beam wing being banned).

That’s either an air speed sensor or the wire that feeds to and from the T-camera. The cross wires are just there to hold it in place.
