    Why does Kamui get just one day in the CT-04?

    Stupid of Caterham, I reckon!

    Should’ve scheduled him for 3 days!!!

  • Taskmaster

    That assumes Kobashi can learn anything through more seat time. They put him on the last day assuming when he crashes into something they will have had their 3 days anyway. The best thing about Kobashi returning is he’ll keep Maldonado from dominating the “WTF was he thinking” commentary… I jest of course. It’s unlikely the Caterham will be fast enough for accidents to cause any damage. My apologies to Kobayashi fans. They’ve done great things for their driver (no other driver has had their seat paid for by their fans – that is truly amazing) and deserve better.
