The Dutch GP2 driver, a Spyker tester in 2007, will be former Lotus squad Caterham's official reserve this season and run "in a number" of Friday morning practice sessions, a media statement said.

"I'd like to thank (sponsor) McGregor and everybody who has supported me in my career and for helping me take this next exciting step," the 26-year-old commented.

Caterham's race drivers are Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli, although there remains speculation the team is waiting to see if Renault refugee Vitaly Petrov's sponsors buy out Italian veteran Trulli's contract.
