Frijns free after Caterham contract expires

Robin Frijns contract with Caterham F1 was not renewed.

Robin Frijns is a free agent once more after his contract with Caterham F1 expired and was not renewed today.

Although the news is hardly surprising his management company has taken the opportunity to remind the world that the talented Dutchman is available.

Frijns did very little running during his time with Caterham, although he was seen in FP1 in Bahrain and Silverstone.

“I’d like to say thank you and goodbye to all the people at Caterham F1 Team, whom I have worked with over the past twelve months. I keep my fingers crossed that there will be a future for the team in Formula One in 2015 and beyond. Especially I’d like to thank former team principal Cyril Abiteboul whom I consider to be mainly responsible for giving me the chance to become a part of the team.”

His management added: “Our partnership with Caterham expires today, since the team obviously hasn’t exercised their option to extend the contract. We cannot deny that the year has developed in a disappointing way after all, but we now have to focus on creating a better situation for next year. However, no decision about Robin’s future has been made yet.”
