2014 Caterham CT05

Formula 1 testing at Jerez began today and with it most of the remaining teams introduced their 2014 cars. While some of today’s reveals were much more promising in the looks department, Caterham’s CT05 wasn’t one of them.

Rather than make any attempts at designing a new nose, it appears they’ve chopped the end off of last year’s design and added one of those ridiculous falices as an afterthought.

Not all of the car’s angles are bad I suppose.

On a much more positive note, Kamui Koybayashi will make his F1 return with the team. He unfortunately had to sit out last season due to a lack of funds. In a world of pay drivers like Pastor Maldonado, it’s become a worrying trend that far more capable talents have missed out on opportunities to snag very precious drives. The grid will certainly be a better place with Kobayashi back in the sport.
