After losing Renault seat, secures race drive with Caterham just a month before season starts, replacing veteran Jarno Trulli.
With intended Renault partner Kubica absent through injury, steps up to the plate with consistently quick and mature performances, scoring first F1 podium at Australian opener. Results rapidly tail off though as innovative R31 becomes increasingly uncompetitive.
Makes an instant impression as the  first Russian driver in F1, with blinding starts and willingness to go wheel-to-wheel with the sport’s best. Inconsistency mars some excellent results, notably fifth in Hungary, and sixth in Abu Dhabi where he fends off a title-chasing Alonso.

Third and seventh overall respectively in the GP2 Asia and main GP2 Series, with one win in each.
Thirteenth overall in GP2 Series. Also competes in Formula Master and the Le Mans Series.
Third overall in Euroseries 3000 and F3000 Italy series. Makes GP2 debut with DPR team.
Formula 1600 Russia champion and Lada Revolution Russia champion.
Limited success in Formula Renault 2000 Italia and Eurocup, and F3000 Euro series.
Competes in various European-based Formula Renault series, his best result fourth overall in the 2.0 UK winter championship.
