Big news this week, members of the Caterham team (and crates of Caterham gear) have been spotted heading to Abu Dhabi off the back of the polarising Crowd Sourcing funding exercise.  It will be interesting to see just who turns up in the garage as the Team Principal, how many of the regular team turn up, and just how far into the race we get before the car(s) fail given the lack of preparation. Then theres the drivers.  Kobayashi has confirmed hell be there to drive his green machine but with Marcus Ericson out of action theres a lot of speculation as to who would pilot the other car.  A number of potential candidates have been mooted, but time has run out for those without a Super Licence to get one in time, which limits the pool.  And Caterham are probably going to ask for a significant payment from any driver who picks up the drive.  Which further limits the potential driver pool to those with the spare cash. So who will we see??  Your guess is as good as mine at this point, but given the WEC series is over for the year - could we see Sebastian Buemi, or Mark Webber, or other recent F1 alumni back as a PR exercise?Leave your thoughts below as a comment, and well see how this week plays out.
