Caterham has become the second Formula 1 team to announce that it is right on track to debut its all new 2014 car.

Last week, Sauber beat all of its rival teams by announcing that the FIA’s mandatory static and dynamic tests were passed by the new C33 chassis, meaning the car is now “officially homologated” ahead of winter testing.

Caterham has now followed suit.

“We have successfully completed the two crash tests for homologation of our 2014 chassis,” the team said on Twitter, adding that it was “great news”.
