Last week, Sauber beat all of its rival teams by declaring 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.

And now Caterham has 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".

Caterham, having finished the 2013 season in last place, is yet to announce its driver lineup for next year.
