Caterham has confirmed that Kamui Kobayashi will return to race for the team in Abu Dhabi.
The second driver has yet to be announced, but it won’t be either Marcus Ericsson or Andre Lotterer, both of whom have made it clear that they won’t be racing.
“It hasn’t been an easy last few weeks, so it will be nice to be back to in the car and work together with the Caterham F1 team members,” said Kobayashi. “I would like to thank the fans for supporting the team like they have. This team is working hard and never gives up. We deserve to be racing in Abu Dhabi and I am very glad we can race again thanks to the crowdfunding Project.
“Now it is our turn to show what we can do – we will all try our best during the weekend ahead and hopefully we can end the season with a positive result for the future of this team.”
