Tony Fernandes is celebrating a healthy deposit into Caterham’s bank account after Vitaly Petrov clinched 11th in the Championship.

Having dropped behind Marussia in the standings in Singapore, Caterham faced a race against time to retake the position from their fellow newcomers.

And Petrov did just that in Brazil on Sunday.

Leaving it to the very late race of the season, the Russian brought his car home in 11th place in a wet-dry grand prix.

And that meant Caterham finished ahead of Marussia in the Constructors’ Championship, earning the team millions in prize money.

“We have done it. We have done it. We have have done it,” Fernandes Tweeted.

“Came 11th and got back to 10th. Worth a lot of money to us. Well done everyone at Caterham.”
