Formula One News » F1 2013 – Heikki Kovalainen returns to Caterham as a reserve driver

Kovalainen was left without a race seat at the end of the 2012 F1 season and has been brought back to the team as a development driver to test new parts at Bahrain and Spain.

“It’s obviously great news that I’ll be on track in Bahrain and Spain and I’m really looking forward to getting back to work and helping the team as much as I can.”

“I’ll be taking part in the two FP1 sessions in Bahrain and Barcelona to give the team my input on the new parts we’re bringing to those races, and I’ll be working closely with the race drivers and the engineers on track and back at Leafield to help everyone get the most out of the new package.”

“Tony Fernandes, Cyril Abiteboul and I have been talking about me taking up this role for quite a while, so it’s good to finally be able to announce how I’ll be helping the team in 2013. I’m physically ready to get back into the car and I know my experience can help give the team new ideas and options for directions to take on setup and strategy. I’m looking forward to getting back to work!”
