Sep.18 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Kamui Kobayashi will stay at the wheel of his green Caterham for this weekend’s Singapore grand prix.

After Andre Lotterer took his place at Spa as the team’s new management seeks sponsored drivers, media reports had suggested Roberto Merhi, Andrea Caldarelli and Roman Rusinov were now next in line for Kobayashi’s cockpit.

But Caterham has announced that Kobayashi will be wearing his usual number 10 under the Asian city-state’s popular floodlights this weekend.

And the following race on the 2014 calendar is in Kobayashi’s native Japan, where in 2012 he scored a highly-popular podium for Sauber.

“After finishing ahead of our closest rivals in Italy, I look forward to another good fight out on track in Singapore,” he was quoted as saying in a pre-race team preview.
