LONDON (Reuters) - German driver Andre Lotterer will replace Japan's Kamui Kobayashi at Caterham for this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix, the Formula One team said on Wednesday.

"Lotterer will replace Kamui Kobayashi for this round of the championship. The Japanese driver still remains part of the team," Caterham said in a statement.

Lotterer, 32, is a three times Le Mans 24 Hours winner. The German has never raced in Formula One but was Jaguar's test driver in 2002.

Caterham's other driver is Swedish rookie Marcus Ericsson.
