Caterham says a new-look nose design will be part of its upgrades at Belgium as it starts the push to reclaim 10th in the constructors' championship.

Caterham's traditional rival for 10th, Marussia, scored a point at Monaco, though Sauber are also yet to score a point in 2014. But while Marussia and Sauber have shown the potential of moving up the pecking order this year Caterham has been consistently off the pace.

Caterham's nose is among the more striking from 2014 but deputy principal Manfredi Ravetto says a new one will be on the car at Spa-Francorchamps.

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