Berthon joins Caterham programme

Caterham have launched a new Development Driver Programme with GP2 driver Nathanael Berthon becoming the first official member.

The Leafield team have announced that the progamme will give up-and-coming drivers the "opportunity to embed themselves in Caterham F1 Team's on and off-track operations", to prepare them fully for the sport.

Berthon will be one of those to benefit and the 25-year-old already has some F1 experience as he took part in the Young Driver Test for HRT in 2011.

He has competed in GP2 for the past three seasons with his one and only victory coming in the Hungary sprint race last year.

New Caterham CEO Christijan Albers said: "We are very pleased to welcome Nathanael into our Development Driver Program.

"He is an exciting young talent with a proven track record in the feeder series for F1 and as he already has F1 experience he fits very neatly into our team.

"We will work closely with him to help him reach his full potential and are all excited about seeing him continue to grow as a driver, in and out of the cockpit."
