Caterham will debut a new-look nose at this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix, deputy team principal Manfredi Ravetto has confirmed.

The F1 Times reported in July that a new nose was under development with the hope of deploying it at Spa, as part of a major development push in order to claim 10th from Sauber or even jump Marussia in 9th.

"The new nose is part of a package of innovations we are bringing to Spa as a demonstration of how we are trying to revive our performance, even if we are restructuring the team and living difficult days from which we hope to emerge soon," Ravetto told Omnicorse.

Whilst the new nose will have a major visual impact on the CT05, Ravetto revealed it's just a small part of a major development package which will become clearer over the next few races.

"The changes in Belgium are, in fact, just the beginning - the most important things you will see later," he added.
