Alexander Rossi will make his F1 race debut this weekend at the Singapore Grand Prix with the Manor F1 Team.
The American is replacing Roberto Merhi at the British team for five of the remaining seven races this season; only missing Russia and Abu Dhabi due to GP2 commitments.
“I’m very thankful to race for Manor and for their continued belief in me,” said Rossi.
“I’ve been prepared for this opportunity for quite a while now.”
The 23-year-old will become the first American to race in F1 since Scott Speed who competed with Toro Rosso back in 2007.
Rossi was close to having a race drive in F1 with Marussia (now Manor) in Belgium last season until Max Chilton secured a last-minute deal to take the seat for himself.
