Caterham have announced that Hari Roberts has joined the team as their new head of aerodynamics. Roberts, who has previous F1 experience with Jordan, Renault and, most recently, Lotus, will work closely with technical director Mark Smith and performance director John Iley.

“I am excited about the challenge that lies ahead with Caterham F1 Team and I am delighted to have renewed my working partnership with Mark, and started a new partnership with the whole team,” said Roberts. “Caterham F1 Team has the potential to grow into a serious force in Formula One and I am looking forward to playing an integral role in helping the team fulfil its potential.”

Smith added: “I am delighted that Hari has joined our team, particularly as his appointment extends an excellent working relationship that I have had with him over many years with teams including Jordan and Renault F1 Team. He gives us more senior leadership in a critical area of the team’s development and it is another sign of our shareholders’ on-going commitment to our team’s growth that we have appointed someone of Hari’s calibre to the role of head of aerodynamics.”

Caterham are looking to move up the grid in 2013, having finished tenth in the constructors’ championship in each of their first three seasons of Formula One competition.
