Kamui Kobayashi will race for Caterham at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Caterham has missed the last two races after the team entered administration ahead of the United States Grand Prix.

However, the Leafield based squad will return to the grid in Abu Dhabi following a successful crowdfunding project which has already raised £2 million.

“I am happy to be racing with the team in Abu Dhabi,” he said. “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.

“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,” he added.

“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.”

Caterham is still to confirm who will partner Kobayashi in Abu Dhabi, with an official announcement expected “in due course”.

Marcus Ericsson terminated his contract with the team last week, leaving Roberto Merhi as the obvious candidate to join Kobayashi for the season finale in Abu Dhabi.
