Heikki Rocks as Caterham pulls up its socks

Is this the renaissance of Caterham?  I know that Free Practice is no particular indicator but in Valencia Caterham in the guise of Heikki Kovalainen have outpaced the two Toro Rosso's in Free Practice 1.

Heikki posted a    1.42.442s
Vergne posted     1.42.758s
Ricciardo posted  1.42.777s

The Caterham is reportedly benefiting from a new floor which would appear to improve the aero package.  In line with my previous post that rated the team as having to produce some kind of on track result (other than keeping the McLaren behind them at Monaco) which would justify their F1 survival , this might just be a signal to Toro Rosso that they too must move forward and can't hang on the midfield's coat-tails any longer.

Congrats to Heikki and to the Caterham Team for giving him the car to pull off this result.  Let's aim for 10th in Silverstone
