Kamui Kobayashi will return to the Caterham cockpit for the Italian Grand Prix after sitting out the race in Belgium in order to allow Andre Lotterer to take over.

The Japanese driver says he supports the teams decision, but is thankful to have the chance to race again this weekend.

"I am working for Caterham F1 Team and I always respect team decisions," he said.

"Now I am back in the car and looking forward to going racing again."

Kobayashi won't take part in first free practice however as the team are committed to running Formula Renault 3.5 driver Roberto Mehri.

The team had hoped to place the young Spaniard in the CT05 for the entire Italian weekend, but the 23-year-old failed to secure an FIA superlicence in time.

He is expected to take part in the Singapore GP weekend, which could see Kobayashi sidelined once again.
