Paris: Three-time Le Mans winner Andre Lotterer will drive for Caterham at this weekend`s Belgian Grand Prix, replacing Japan`s Kamui Kobayashi, the team announced on Wednesday.
Germany`s Lotterer, 32, is "one of the most experienced drivers racing under mixed conditions", Caterham said, and the weather forecast for the Spa-Francorchamps circuit at the weekend is changeable.
