Finn Kovalainen, whilst highly rated by Fernandes, brings no sponsorship to Caterham.
Caterham boss Tony Fernandes has admitted he “cannot discount going down the pay-driver route” for 2013, according to a report in the Guardian. That would be bad news for Heikki Kovalainen, who already admitted in India last weekend that financial issues are clouding his future.
