Kobayashi heading to Monza for Caterham return
Caterham on Thursday confirmed reports Kamui Kobayashi is returning to race duty this weekend at Monza. The Japanese was sidelined two weeks ago at Spa-Francorchamps, as reigning Le Mans winner Andre Lotterer and his sponsor Hype stepped into the green car.
Andre Lotterer has turned down the chance to make a second appearance for Caterham this weekend at Monza.
The F1 rumour mill is alight with speculation Caterham is taking a new race driver to this weekend’s Belgian grand prix.
After Kamui Kobayashi admitted recently his race seat may not be safe in the wake of the Leafield based team’s sale and subsequent shakeup, the big rumour now is that the Japanese is set to be replaced by 2014 Le Mans winner Andre Lotterer.
Kamui Kobayashi has backed the sweeping changes at Caterham, even though it has put his formula one future in doubt.
Caterham has hit back after it emerged sacked staff are moving to sue the backmarker team’s new management.
Earlier in July, following founder Tony Fernandes’ sale of the green-coloured team to mysterious Swiss-Middle Eastern investors, new bosses Colin Kolles and Christijan Albers ousted about 40 of Caterham’s Leafield-based workforce.
Caterham is facing legal action after sacking 40 members of staff earlier this month.
As team founder Tony Fernandes departed and mysterious Swiss-based Middle Eastern investors led by Colin Kolles moved in, Caterham announced that the departures were “a necessary step” for the “future of the team”.
