Caterham F1 quotes after Chinese GP


There is nothing much to say about Caterham F1 Team performance in China but here is what the drivers had to say soon after the end of the Grand Prix:


Charles Pic, car 20, chassis CT03-#6:

“For me that was a good race, almost as good
as we could have hoped for with our current performance  levels and run to a good
race strategy. The car felt good right from the start – the setup we went for worked
well and I had a decent start on the soft tyres and came in just as they were starting
to degrade heavily, came out ahead of Bianchi and for two thirds of the race I was
pretty comfortably holding 15th place. Unfortunately on my third stop I came out in
16th and didn’t quite have enough pace to fight so I finished in 16th, but the fact we
were able to keep pace with the Marussia for the whole race and at some points be
just out of reach of a Williams is very encouraging for the future. Now we go straight
to Bahrain where we hope things will become interesting.”


Giedo van der Garde, car 21, chassis CT03-#5:

“That really wasn’t a good race for
me. I had another very strong start, passing three cars, but almost from the moment
the first set of softs started going off I couldn’t find any real pace and was struggling
for the whole race. After a good Friday it’s been a pretty tough weekend for me, but
I’m a very positive person and this is all part of the learning curve I knew I’d have for
the early season races and I know I have the team on my side to help me progress.
We have the chance straight away to get back to the sort of performance we want in
Bahrain so we’ll look at what we can learn from here and move on to the next race
where I’m sure things will improve.”
