Preparations for the 2014 season got underway in Jerez on Tuesday, and it was all too clear how much work the teams will have to do before the first race in March.
McLaren’s new MP4-29 failed to complete a lap at Jerez on Tuesday, leaving Jenson Button twiddling his thumbs.
Although the car had been fired up successfully in the factory, the team had trouble getting it to run properly on Monday night, and despite working on the problems, it ran out of time on Tuesday.
Kamui Kobayashi and Marcus Ericsson today revealed CT05, the Caterham F1 Team car the Japanese and Swedish drivers will be competing with in the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship.

The first car to be fully designed and built at Caterham’s Leafield Technical Centre, CT05 is the team’s answer to the all-new F1 regulations that have come into force in 2014. The car will race in Caterham’s new all-green 2014 livery and, for the fourth year in a row, will be powered by Renault Sport F1, using the new Renault Energy F1 engine mated to a Red Bull Technology gearbox.
