Caterham has confirmed that Will Stevens will line-up alongside Kamui Kobayashi at this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Caterham is returning after a two-race absence and the Brit, who has previously tested for the Leafield-based squad, will link up with Kobayashi for the final round of the year.

Stevens won two rounds of this year's Formula Renault 3.5 Series and signed for the team last week but had to wait until he received conformation of his Super Licence in order to make his Formula 1 debut.

"I’m absolutely thrilled to be getting this opportunity and am very grateful to everyone involved at Caterham for giving it to me," he said.

"I feel ready for the challenge of my F1 debut and look forward to working as part of the Team in a race environment after all the work we’ve done together previously in the tests I’ve completed and back at Leafield in the simulator.

"Hopefully this will be something we will be able to carry through to the 2015 season together."
