Caterham Fills Up "Begging Bowl" and says Abu Daba Do...

This is good news for the sport, even if its awash in controversy, most notable from  F1's Czar Uncle Bernaughty, whilst it seems to Mwah, that Lotuses F1 Boss GĂ©rard Lopez is Jealous!

Thus in case Y'all haven't heard, Caterham F1, currently in Administration launched a novel and perhaps audacious scheme to raise some 2.35-million pounds funding thru Fan donations in seven days time in order to go racing at the season finale at Abu Dhabi.

And while this target wasn't completely met, nevertheless, the Administrator  felt they'd come sufficiently close, and with other solicitations will indeed return to  action in Formula 1's "Abu Double" race.

Meanwhile, Sweden's Marcus Ericsson, who's taken his Kroner's off to Sauber F1 for a 2015 race seat, had already pulled the plug upon his association with Caterham earlier in the week, and hence, it's not  clear over who Caterham's two drivers will be at Yas Island?

Yet "K-Squared," aka Kamui Kobayashi is still supposedly contracted  to the team, while the names of female GP3 racer Alice Powell and reigning GP2 champion Jolian Palmer have been tossed around.

Or could past Friday Free Practice driver Roberto Merhi be in the frame, or even more intriguing perhaps a shock "One-off" return to his former employer by Alexander Rossi? As the Californian really should have been on the grid this year at Austin...
