Caterham has confirmed that Kamui Kobayashi will continue to race for the team at this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix.

Kobayashi was replaced for the Belgian Grand Prix by Andre Lotterer but returned to his seat in Italy.

Kobayashi nonetheless admitted at the most recent event that his future with the team was uncertain and he could not confirm whether he would be in the CT05 for the remainder of the season.

Kobayashi's future also remained unclear following Caterham's decision to hand Roberto Merhi a practice outing at Monza.

But the team, currently at the foot of the Constructors' championship, confirmed on Wednesday that the Japanese driver will continue alongside Marcus Ericsson at this weekend's race around Marina Bay.

"After finishing ahead of our closest rivals in Italy, I look forward to another good fight out on track in Singapore – it will be good to see what we are capable of with the updated car at the Marina Bay Street Circuit – at street circuits anything can happen and we need to make sure we do our best," said Kobayashi.
