The Caterham F1 Team has confirmed that Rodolfo Gonzalez will join Vitaly Petrov and Heikki Kovalainen at the fourth official test of the 2012 F1 season. Caterham's objective, of course, is to make their car faster – and the sooner the better. At the last race in Bahrain, both Caterhams were lapped on their way to sixteenth and seventeenth. The team's fastest lap was 1:38.305, nearly two seconds slower than the race winner's quickest effort.Rodolfo Gonzalez, said: "I am very excited about getting back into an F1 car at the Mugello test, and want to thank Caterham F1 Team for this opportunity. It will be my third time in an F1 car with this team and it will be another good chance for me to further my experience at the top level of global motorsport.” Riad Asmat, Caterham Group Chief Executive Officer, added: "Rodolfo is developing well and we are very pleased we are playing an active role in his growth as a driver. He did a good job for us when he took part in the young driver tests - and we expect him to work to the plans he is given, deliver what we ask him to on track, and provide the engineers with the sort of feedback someone with his experience should.” No pressure then.
