French driver Charles Pic will run for Caterham in 2013 announced the team last November 23rd. The other Caterham Driver is yet to be confirmed as well as who will replace Pic in Marussia.
Charles Pic performed much better than his teammate and more experienced driver, german Timo Glock, beating him several times in qualifying sessions and ending 15 of the 20 races in a better position.
Charles has a brother also on motorsports – Arthur Pic- that participated in this year’s World Series By Renault championship – where Portuguese driver António Félix da Costa outshined in the end of the season – and finished in 8th place overall (1 race win and 2 poles). Charles Pic was 3rd overall in this same category in 2009 and finished 4th in the GP2 2011 championship (won two races and recorded 3 poles).
Although both teams did not record any point, Caterham managed to surpass Marussia in the final Formula 1 2012 constructors classification. Their 10th place will entitle them better financial conditions in Formula 1 next season.
