The future of Caterham appears to be bleak.

Caterham team owner Tony Fernandes has been frustrated with the landscape of Formula One for sometime and with Marussia’s improvement this season and especially them securing their first points in their history, pressure mounts at Caterham.

Fernandes has other interests, he’s part owner of British football club Queens Park Rangers who will be playing in the Premier League next season.

His investment in the football club receives rewards, with huge television deals earning huge sums.

At Caterham, Fernandes invests huge sums and receives little reward. So it’s hardly surprising if he has indeed fallen out of love with Formula One.

It was thought that he was trying to sell the team, but a post on Twitter, which was written shortly before he closed his account said: ?F1 hasn?t worked but love Caterham Cars’, cue millions around the world trying to decipher the 39 character tweet.

For all the staff at the factory and for drivers Kamui Kobayashi and Marcus Ericsson it has to be unsettling, but for veteran Kobayashi, he’s just going to concentrate on things he has an influence over.

?Of course, I?m not wishing these stories. I?m here for driving ? me, I can?t change anything, you know? I cannot bring any money or stuff. Kobayashi told Sky Sports.

?Financially, I think we?re in a very difficult situation but I cannot do anything so I just focus on my job. That?s part of my job actually: I?ll just try for a better result as much as I can.

?I just hope that somebody can help this team. This is the only thing I can say.?
