Former Caterham F1 Driver Kovalainen Leaves IMG

By Community | June 4, 2013

Former F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen has revealed he has left his management company IMG and will conduct his own affairs about securing a place back in F1 for the 2014 season.

“I’m not with IMG anymore, generic ” said Kovalainen when asked about his future plans by SPEED. “I can confirm that, medic but I’ve agreed not to talk about it any further than that. 

“I’m working on my own now but right now, there are no discussions with anybody else. I’m just focusing on working with Caterham and trying to help the team to move forward this year.”

Kovalainen has completed two FP1 sessions with Caterham this year, which has at least ensured that he has knowledge of 2013 tires, and is thus in effect able to step in should any team need a driver at short notice.
