From Lotus F1, acquire Caterham, QPR, producing sports car with Alpine Renault, and now yachting. Who is bank rolling these ambitious plans? Who big is Caterham? what have they achieved? There is no news of a new Caterham 7, QPR is relegated and Caterham F1 is now 11th running 2 pay drivers.
* Caterham is a newly bought over company by Tony Fernandez and he has a plan to put Caterham on the map in different area's. The Caterham Car business is expecting to grow, especially now with the combination of Renault Alpine and the new and improved Caterham Seven 485.
* News about the New Caterham Seven 485 was launched on May 2nd 2013.

* QPR is indeed relegated but Tony is not giving up on the team like many other business man would do. He's staying at the club and fighting to be back in the premiership.
* Caterham is working its way into the Aero business which Tony has positioned himself great with the partnership of Airbus/AEDS.
* The Sailing business is indeed a bit risky, however this is another group which has close connections to the F1 world. It attracts a whole different group of people which most of them are high class. This is an opportunity for Caterham instead of costing too much.
Back to Caterham F1 team, Tony himself has mentioned before that Caterham F1 team would only cost money and would need to be sponsored by the other Caterham businesses to become a long term sustainable F1 team.
