'No surprise' Caterham struggling in 2013 - Kovalainen

A certain level of stagnation and Marussia's improvement has combined to leave the team at the bottom of the grid in performance.

May 10th, 2013 (GMM).- Heikki Kovalainen insists it is "no surprise" Caterham has struggled so far in 2013, and there several reasons for that.

He drove in Friday practice recently in Bahrain, and on Friday in Barcelona he will drive again, at the wheel of Frenchman Pic's car.

He said he hopes an upgrade package for the Spanish grand prix puts Caterham back ahead of usual rival Marussia.

"The car itself is basically the same as last year's," Kovalainen is quoted by Turun Sanomat newspaper.

"The monocoque is the same, only the aerodynamics were modified. So it's no surprise the team has not gone so well, when you're putting an old car against the new ones."

Kovalainen confirmed that Caterham's approach to this year has been deliberate.

"The team is trying to stay - with the least possible effort - in the top ten this year and put more effort into next year," he said.

"The new car is being developed already.

"When the rules change so much, it's important for us to get started with the new car as quickly as possible."

This year the surprise has been more the upward move of the Marussia team, whose surge is hurting the green cars of Caterham. Jules Bianchi certainly revitalized the team making him the best driver among those who usually occupy the last for places on the grid.

It is for Caterham to up its game and to shorten the performance gap no only to Marussia, but to the middle of the pack teams.
