Caterham F1 changes leadership again as Albers steps down
Although it's unclear whether Albers saw his transitionary mission as complete or if there was some clash with his financial backers, the retired Dutch driver has reportedly stepped aside. In his place, rather than have Colin Kolles (who himself is reportedly working on starting his own team) calling the shots, the team has promoted Ravetto to team principal, with Kolles apparently serving as technical director.
Whether the reconfigured leadership can improve the team's fortunes remains to be seen, but one thing's for sure: there's only one way for Caterham to go, and that's up. In five seasons on the grid (previously under the Lotus banner before that naming dispute was resolved), the team currently known as Caterham (though who knows for how much longer) has utterly failed to distinguish itself. It has yet to take a podium finish (let alone a race win), rack up a pole or fastest lap or even score a single championship point, finishing in tenth or eleventh place in every season in which it has competed thus far.
