“2013 will be my third season with the Caterham family and I’ve built solid relationships within the whole team.

Last year Ma Qing Hua was a member of HRT development programme and he mentioned about that after signing with Caterham:

“I am very excited about joining the Caterham family. Both teams have everything they need to keep growing in the right direction and I am looking forward to playing an important role in helping them achieve what they’ve set out to do this year. I know the fans at home will be really excited to see me race in GP2 and with the Formula 1 work I also have ahead of me, China can be proud that it continues to have a driver involved in motor racing at the very highest level.”
