Lotterer open to more Caterham outings
31 August 2014 – André Lotterer says he is open to more Formula 1 outings with Caterham, having made his debut in the sport with the team at last weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.
Lotterer regularly races for Audi in the World Endurance Championship as well as in Japan's Super Formula series. The German was drafted in by Caterham to aid the squad with an extensive upgrade package on the CT05.
Lotterer retried from the race early on but says he could appear again with Caterham later in the season.
"We're still in touch and I think there's opportunities to do more races," Lotterer told Racer.
"I really have to think about it. It was a great experience for me and I have to look at the schedule and see if it is more of a one-off chapter for me or if it makes sense to do more."
Lotterer added that he was surprised with the level of support he received across the weekend in Belgium.
"It felt like everybody at Audi was behind me and all of the people who supported my career before and in Japan," he said.
"I felt like I carried the whole WEC paddock on my back, Audi was very happy with everything, and I was surprised in general how much everyone was supporting me. It was a nice feeling for me; I didn't expect that. Formula 1 is another dimension."
Caterham has yet to confirm whether Kamui Kobayashi will return to a race seat for next weekend's Italian Grand Prix.
