Riad Asmat has been with company supremo Tony Fernandes since the beginning of the project, rising to the height of chief executive of the F1 team and most recently the head of Caterham Automotive.

But the outfit announced this week that Asmat is "moving on to seek new challenges".

"My decision to move on has been one of the hardest I have had to make and will have to make in my career, but the time has come for a new direction," Asmat said.
