Lotus development driver Fong, who sits 22nd in the GP3 standings, missed the penultimate round in Bahrain due to a clash with the FIA GT World Cup in Macau.

With his seat at Koiranen now taken by Russian racer Matevos Isaakyan, Fong will instead switch to Carlin - the fourth team of his three-year GP3 career.

He will line up alongside Ferrari protege Antonio Fuoco and Mitch Gilbert, with Nissan protege Jann Mardenborough - ninth in the standings - out of the roster.
