Caterham duo target improved practice sessions

Caterham duo Kamui Kobayashi and Marcus Ericsson say that the team must have a better build-up to the race if they are to improve at next weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix.

Neither driver managed significant running across the two practice sessions in Australia and Kobayashi reckons a proper Friday programme will allow Caterham to show their true pace.

“I’ve obviously raced there a few times before, and finished in the points in 2011, and this year it would be great if we were able to fight for a point, but we’ll have to make sure we have a better Friday than we did in Australia if we’re going to have a stronger weekend at Sepang,” said the Japanese.

“The way we bounced back in qualifying in Melbourne showed a little bit of what we can do, but without any real laps in FP1 or FP2 we only had a very small chance to fight. With a proper Friday and Saturday programme we can give ourselves the opportunity to show the true pace of the car, and prepare much more for the race.
