Caterham should waste no time worrying about the gap to the established outfits right now and instead needs to keep its focus on longer term gains, reckons Charles Pic. On the back of an encouraging step forward delivered by updates at the Bahrain Grand Prix, a more extensive development package is set for introduction in Spain next week. Pic was able to outqualify both Marussias at Sakhir for the first time this year, and he has high hopes that a push forward is now being delivered

Honda’s World Touring Car Championship team boss Alessandro Mariani has set out a bold aim to win the opening race of next season, despite the new Civic WTCC having only hit the track a week ago. Mariani, whose JAS team is running Honda’s works operation from its Italian base, said following the Civic’s first proper test at Vallelunga that the programme has all the ingredients necessary – including drivers Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro – to challenge the established teams when it runs full-time in 2013. “Although Honda is not putting any pressure on us, we would like to achieve some good results, and our true goal is winning the first race in 2013,” Mariani said

Heikki Kovalainen is willing to give Caterham time to prove that it can make the progress he wants to see, after enduring a frustrating start to his 2012 campaign. The Finn had hoped for Caterham to be challenging the established teams in the midfield this season, but the team’s CT01 has fallen short of expectations and is still lacking pace. With high hopes that updates scheduled for the next two races can give the team the step up it needs, however, Kovalainen says he is not yet at the stage of being frustrated

Team Lotus has now laid the foundations to help it build a better future following its name change switch to Caterham for next year, reckons team principal Tony Fernandes.

Andy Priaulx is confident that he can achieve success in the DTM, after being named as one of BMW’s drivers for its comeback year in 2012. The Brit has been a BMW factory driver since 2003 and had won three World Touring Car Championships and a European crown for the German manufacturer in that time. But Priaulx, whose efforts in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup this year has taken BMW into second place in the manufacturers’ standings in the GTE class, is not underestimating the effort that it will take to turn the new M3 DTM into a race-winning car
April 3rd, 2011
Lotus technical chief Mike Gascoyne is confident that his team will be in a stronger position in Malaysia, both because it is identified and fixed its Melbourne issues, and because he believes the Sepang track will play to the T128′s strengths. After a winter in which Lotus hoped it had made enough progress to challenge the likes of Toro Rosso and Force India in the midfield pack, the team was disappointed to find itself back in its 2010 position – behind the established teams but ahead of Virgin – in Australia. Gascoyne felt that Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen had shown better form in the grand prix, and said that Lotus had rectified the glitches that interrupted its running in Melbourne.
