Lotus has announced that GP3 racer Adderly Fong has joined the squad as a development driver.

Fong participated in practice for Sauber in Abu Dhabi last year and now joins Carmen Jorda in a development role at Lotus.

"This is a great opportunity to further my racing career; I’ll be able to learn how an

F1 team operates during race weekends as an integral part of the team and these invaluable experiences are going to lay the foundations of my future development as an F1 driver," said Fong.

"I am happy but I am not going to get carried away, for this is only the first of many steps. I aim to become the first Chinese driver to compete in a Formula 1 Grand Prix which will assist to promote the sport in China and also in Hong Kong.

"There is great potential for me with Lotus so I can’t wait to get underway in my new role."
