Caterham to launch 2013 car at Jerez test
21 January, 2013
Caterham will unveil their 2013 car, the CT03, at Jerez on the morning of the first day of the first Formula One preseason test at the circuit in southern Spain, but have not confirmed if their second driver will be present along with new signing Charles Pic.
In a press release the team stated: “Caterham F1 Team has confirmed that its 2013 race car, the CT03, will be unveiled on 5 February 2013 at 0845 in the pitlane of the Circuit de Jerez in Spain. 5th February is day one of the 2013 pre-season F1 tests and Caterham F1 Team will commence its test program immediately after taking the wraps off its new car.”
GMM reports that the team, tenth in last year’s championship, announced on Monday that the new car will be called CT03, even though the 2012 single seater was the CT01.
“The first road car from our partnership with Renault is CT02, hence CT03. Simple!” Caterham said on Twitter.
When asked if the team’s second driver would be present at the launch and test, Caterham’s Head of Communications Tom Webb replied, “I hope so!” (GP247)
