SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, August 24th, 2014 (F1Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Andre Lotterer retired after one lap of the Belgian Grand Prix when the CT05 lost power.
Lotterer was in the Caterham for one weekend in place of Kamui Kobayashi.
"I didn’t even get the chance to sweat unfortunately," Lotterer said.
"I was really looking forward to a good race and I had a good start, but then I went a bit wide at turn 17 and there was a sudden loss of power."
"The team and Renault will have to investigate this tonight and see what happened."
Lotterer said he was pleased with his weekend, even though he didn't see the chequered flag.
"It’s a shame, but I am pleased with my race weekend – I made no mistakes and did a reasonably good job,"
"Of course it would’ve been fantastic to finish the race and do a whole Grand Prix, but it’s still been an amazing weekend.
"I can go home happy even though it didn’t really end the way I would’ve liked it to."
Cedrik Staudohar, Renault Sport F1 track support leader, suggested that he may have lost power after driving over a kerb.
"André’s race was very short – his car lost power on the second lap, possibly as a result of running hard over a kerb. We need to look into this tonight in more detail," he said.
Teammate Marcus Ericsson finished the race 17th. Staudohar said tyre wear cost Ericsson 16th place.
“We had a very smooth race with Marcus and he was ahead of Chilton for a large part of the GP."
"We tried to give him as much power as possible at the end, but his tyre wear was too high and Max was able to get past."
