The German warned that he has a lot to learn very quickly

SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, 21st August, 2014 (F1Plus / Rosie Baillie) - André Lotterer has warned not to expect too much from his stand-in appearance at Caterham at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Earlier this week Caterham announced that three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Lotterer would be replacing Kamui Kobayashi at the Belgian Grand Prix.

“I have to learn everything very fast, so don't expect too much from me,” Lotterer said.

The German has won races in a number of categories and says his experience gave him the confidence to do this and hopes he can bring his skill and speed to the car.

“It's an unusual situation. The wins in other categories gave me the confidence to say 'OK, I have an established career on the other side with Audi and also, in parallel, in Japan, so I don't have much to lose doing this,” he said.

“We have an updated package and I hope I can bring all my experience and my speed as fast as possible.”

This will not be Lotterer’s first time behind the wheel of a Formula One car. He tested for the Jaguar team in 2002.
