Caterham announce Jerez test schedule
The Leafield-based outfit confirmed their 2014 driver line-up on Tuesday, with former Toyota and Sauber driver Kamui Kobayashi being joined by rookie Marcus Ericsson.
Ericsson will be the first driver to test the car, taking to the track on Tuesday and Wednesday before handing over to reserve driver Robin Frijns for day three.
The fourth and final day of the test will see Kobayashi get his first taste of the team’s 2014 challenger. Caterham will unveil their new car at the Jerez track prior to the start of testing.
“So, our driver line-up for T01 is @Ericsson_Marcus on days 1 & 2 (28th / 29th Jan), @RFrijns on day 3 (30th Jan) & @kamui_kobayashi on day 4,” they said on Twitter.
Meanwhile they gave the Renault V6 Turbo engine its first fire-up recently, releasing this video. Turn up the sound and have a listen:
