Formula One team Force India says Adrian Sutil will be its second race driver this season.
The German rejoins pilot Paul Di Resta after both drove for Force India in 2011.
The 30-year-old Sutil competed with Jules Bianchi through the first two preseason tests for the right to take the place of Nico Hulkenberg, who moved to Sauber.
Sutil will continue preseason testing for Force India on Friday and Saturday at the Catalunya Circuit.
He says "I'm delighted to be back in Formula One, especially with a team I know so well."
