Kovalainen Gets Friday Outing In Bahrain

Heikki Kovalainen will make a return to Caterham F1 Team this Friday when he replaces Giedo van der Garde for the first Friday practice session.

The Finn lost his place at the team after three years when he reportedly refused to pay for a seat at the team when the time came for a contract renewal at the end of 2012. Unlike former back-marker rival Timo Glock who too lost his seat last year, Kovalainen has not settled into a new racing series.

Kovalainen will be taking the CT-03 out on track in Bahrain and then again two weeks later at the Circuit de Catalunya. He has reportedly been drafted in to help the team develop their upgrades to keep them in the fight with rivals Marussia.

China’s Ma Qing Hua was the first Chinese driver to run a session in his home country, last weekend when he was given the Caterham for the Friday morning session in Shanghai.
