AutoGP racer Kevin Giovesi has become the newest member of the Caterham driver development programme.

Giovesi, 20, is currently in fourth place in the AutoGP standings and previously raced in Italian Formula Three.

Giovesi is the second member of the newly formed programme, with GP2 racer Nathanael Berthon having joined earlier this month.

A Caterham statement explained that the programme 'gives up and coming drivers the opportunity to embed themselves in the F1 team’s operations at Leafield Technical Centre and on track, and to gain valuable experience of working with F1 engineers and current season F1 technology in a virtual environment in the team’s driver-in-the-loop simulator'.

Caterham's junior driver programme has undergone changes since Tony Fernandes sold the Formula 1 outfit to a consortium of Swiss and Middle Eastern investors earlier in July.

Alexander Rossi parted company with the Formula 1 and GP2 outfit, which remains owned by Fernandes, although Robin Frijns remains as reserve driver.
