Lotterer in the spotlight

Not Jean Claude Van Damme
If the new management at Caterham plan was for headlines, they are winning big time.  After new Spa aero package, today comes news Kamui Kobayashi is being sacked (at least for one race) in favor of Andre Lotterer in Belgium.

Lotterer gets a second chance at F1, he used to be a test driver at Jaguar twelve years ago but was passed over in favor of Webber and the incomparable Antonio Pizzonia.   Jaguar F1 was soon after sold to a certain energy drink manufacturer.

Usually, it's F1 drivers who go to Sports cars, not the other way around but I guess with F1 taking on more and more of Endurance characteristics, who knows...


  1. I can't see how going from a works team like Audi Sport to Caterham F1 (who probably won't be on the grid in a couple of years) is a step up.

  2. Gossip in Spain: the first option was Roberto Merhi but he hasn't yet the super license
