    Yeah, the espn f1 article and Joe Saward's blog mention that it has been verified in English public records that Tony Fernandes and Kamarudin Meranun were appointed as directors of Caterham last week. Good news or bad? Anybody's guess.

      'Team Caterham' in F1 racing? :D

      Edit: Seriously though, the company was bought not long ago by venture capitalists. The general drift at that time was.... they'd turn it around profitability & product wise and then sell it on. And so they did. That's what venture capitalists do and frankly the company has been well guided by them. The product offerings are great, including the new track car, in my opinion. I guess the biggest question I have is whether Ansar Ali will be sent on. I think he's done an outstanding job while at the helm.

      Edit again: From the F1 Times website: "Update: Documents from Companies House show that Fernandes became Director of Caterham Cars Ltd on April 12th."
