Two F1 journalists are on the board of the Caterham Group, the parent company of the Tony Fernandes-led team. Team boss Fernandes announced the formation of the Group at the Brazilian grand prix on 27 November last year. UK Companies House records show that Joe Saward and David Tremayne were appointed as directors just nine days later.
In the company filing, Briton Saward’s occupation is listed as “journalist/consultant”.
“The nature of Saward and Tremayne’s roles in Caterham are as yet unknown, but one would assume Joe will announce something on his popular F1 blog during the next few days,” Steve Davies, of the skiddmark.com website, said.
