Caterham technical chief Mike Gascoyne has announced that the Caterham squad's 2012 contender has passed its crash tests.
The former Team Lotus also officially switched over to its new Caterham title this week.
"Great week," Gascoyne wrote on his Twitter account. "Renaming as Caterham F1 Team on Tuesday and today our first chassis, CT-01 passes all FIA homologation tests. Well done all."
Caterham has yet to announce when it will officially launch its 2012 car. The team has re-signed Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli for next year.
