'Kobayashi to race for Caterham'

Kamui Kobayashi will reportedly return to the Formula One grid this season having signed with Caterham.


Kobayashi has been without a drive since losing his Sauber race-seat at the end of the 2012 campaign.

Determined to remain in the sport, Kobayashi set up a site to attract sponsorship, however, even that was not enough to find him a new home.

However, it now appears as if the Japanese driver won't be away from F1 for very long as Autosprint claims he has secured a Caterham drive.

Caterham have long made it known that they want an experienced driver as part of their 2014 line-up in light of the new regulations.

As for his team-mate, the publication is reporting that 23-year-old Marcus Ericsson will take the second seat after finding "financial support" to make his F1 debut.

Felipe Nasr and Valtteri Bottas head out to begin the fourth and final day
