Kobayashi: Caterham not looking back
3 June 2014 – Kamui Kobayashi has said everyone at Caterham is 'focused on making progress' in the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend.
Kobayashi felt he could have scored in Monaco had he not been hit by Jules Bianchi, but despite that disappointment, and despite admitting they will need another 'crazy race' to get into the top-ten, he insisted they are 'not looking back'.
"I was in the factory last week to start preparations for Canada and even though Monaco didn't end for me as we'd planned, despite us doing everything we could, everyone is still fighting harder than ever," Kobayashi remarked.
"Crazy races like we had last week don't come too often, but when they do we need to be ready and after talking to a lot of the team last week I know that they are all focused on making progress, not looking back at what might have been," he confirmed.
Looking more to this weekend, Kobayashi stated that ideally they would like wet weather as that always mixes things up.
"On track Canada is a good place to go racing. It is one of the most popular races of the year and one where the weather can play a very big part in the race," he added. "At the moment the forecasts look dry For Friday, Saturday and Sunday but if that changes it could definitely be in our favour and we need to make sure we're ready to take anything that comes our way.
"I've had a couple of points finishes in Canada in 2011 and 2012 and it would obviously be cool to have the same again this year – as I say though, that will probably take a crazy race but if that happens I'll be prepared and ready, as will the whole team," he vowed.
