Giedo van der Garde makes the step up to Formula 1 after four seasons in GP2, where he achieved a best finish of fifth in the standings in 2011.
The Dutchman served as Caterham's reserve driver in 2012 after joining the British-based squad's GP2 team and took part in six first practice sessions.
His F1 experience extends far beyond this, however. Van der Garde joined McLaren's young driver programme in 2006, before becoming reserve driver with Super Augri in December that year.
Just two months later he was announced as test driver at the new Spyker team and after a contract dispute was resolved between the two teams, he made his debut at the latter outfit's local Silverstone track in June 2007.
He continued in the role in 2008, when Spyker became Force India, whilst also competing in the World Series by Renault where he took the FR3.5 crown.
That remains the 27-year-old's sole title in single-seaters after an average junior career in which he has tended to finish around sixth in the Drivers' Championship.
Van der Garde did have a successful karting career, however, winning the Dutch title in 1998 and the World title in 2002.
