New Caterham CEO 'not happy'

New Caterham CEO 'not happy'

Another disappointing weekend for Caterham has left new CEO Christjian Albers admitting he was unhappy with the team's performance.

Neither Kamui Kobyashi nor Marcus Ericsson finished within the 107 per cent time in Saturday's qualifying leaving the duo to start the British GP on the back row of the grid.

And it didn't get any better in the 52-lap race.

While Ericsson retired with car troubles, Kobayashi finished two laps down after his CT05 was damaged on the opening lap.

Ultimately it was another point-less weekend for Caterham although Albers, a former F1 driver, is adamant there were some encouraging signs.

The Dutchman told Autosport: "We're obviously not happy with where we finished today, but for my first weekend with the team I have to say it's been good.

"We're not even a week into this new chapter in the team's life but we've already seen just how hard everyone at the track and at the factory is prepared to work to push us forwards, and how determined we all are to achieve our targets this year.

"We obviously have a lot of work to do but we're prepared for the challenges ahead and we have another chance in two weeks time to make progress in Germany, so we'll aim to do just that and, little by little, keep improving."
