Briton Will Stevens will make his Formula One debut when he races alongside Japanese driver Kamui Kobayashi for Caterham at this weekend`s Abu Dhabi season-ending grand prix, the team said on Thursday.
Andre Lotterer may be twice as old as F1`s latest teenage sensation Jos Verstappen but the 32-year-old intends to seize his opportunity this weekend when he takes over Kamui Kobayashi`s Caterham seat at the Belgian Grand Prix.
Japan`s Kamui Kobayashi wasted no time in making an impression on his return to Formula One, ploughing his Caterham into the back of Felipe Massa`s Williams before the first corner of the Australian Grand Prix on Sunday.
Felipe Massa said officials should give Kamui Kobayashi a one-race ban after a mistake from the Japanese driver ended the Australian Grand Prix for both competitors just seconds into the race on Sunday.
Japanese Formula One driver Kamui Kobayashi said the progress in Japan had been remarkable in the six months since an earthquake and tsunami left 20,000 dead or missing and sparked a nuclear crisis on its Pacific coast.
