Caterham's day will come, says Kobayashi
10 June 2014 – Caterham F1 driver Kamui Kobayashi has said he is pretty certain the team's day will come soon, even though the squad suffered more woe in Canada last weekend.
Kobayashi and team-mate Marcus Ericsson both failed to finish at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, with the latter forced out early on due to a turbo issue, while the former had a suspension problem and went out on lap 23. It was the team's second double DNF of the season and Kobayashi's third retirement of F1 2014.
"We had a pretty hard time in Canada but we will continue to fight. Our day will come, I am pretty certain about that, but it wasn't to be this weekend," Kobayashi commented.
"We will have a look at everything we have learnt this weekend back at the factory [now] and [then] go to the next race in Austria ready to fight again."
Quizzed on his race, he added: "My start was okay and I managed to avoid all the debris from the Marussia crash on lap one. The tyre management under the safety car was pretty good, but then a couple of laps after it came in I felt a problem with the rear coming out of turn two and had to stop the car. When I got out I had a look and I could see it was a rear suspension problem, so that was that..."
