VIDEO: Hingham’s Caterham show off their Formula One ambitions

Hingham-backed Caterham have ramped up the excitement ahead of the new Formula One season with a video from Jerez at the start of the month.

The former Team Lotus Norfolk outfit took some time out of their 2012 preparations to film Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen but the team's new charger through its paces at the opening test session of the winter in Spain.

On Friday Caterham confirmed Russian driver Vitaly Petrov will drive alongside Kovalainen this season and duly announced on Monday a new partnership with Russia's largest petrochemical agents Sibur – continuing the company's partnership with ex-Lotus Renault man Petrov in the process.

Formula One teams return to testing in Barcelona for four days, starting on Tuesday, with one more test at the Spanish track before things kick off for real in Melbourne, on March 18.
