Caterham Keen for Kovalainen Involvement

kovalainen1-lg

Despite losing his race seat for 2013, Heikki Kovalainen is still a wanted man at the team that dumped him, Caterham.

The team’s boss Cyril Abiteboul spoke out against his former driver, saying the relationship had soured.

“I think at a certain point at the end of last season, maybe there was not the sort of trust and confidence and respect – on both sides – that you should be counting on for the development of the team and driver,” he said. “It’s like with your girlfriend or wife — sometimes when you disappoint too much, you know the relationship is just … broken.”

Despite his comments, Abiteboul was still keen to have Kovalainen involved in the team.

“We continue to have discussions with Heikki to see if a different project could be possible,” he said. “Let’s be honest: we’d be keen to keep experience in our line-up. That’s something we’d both be interested in under the right conditions.”

Caterham goes into 2013 with a completely new driver line-up, with former Marussia driver Charles Pic and rookie Giedo van der Garde announced as its drivers ahead of the opening race in Melbourne on March 17th.
