After missing round four of the season to compete in the Belgian Grand Prix, German Andre Lotterer was back in action in the Japanese Super Formula series.

Lotterer, who was lent to Caterham by Petronas Team Tom’s for a week-end in F1, clinched his second victory of the season this Sunday in Autopolis.

The win moved him within 2.5 points of championship leader Joao Paulo Lima de Oliveira.

Lotterer, also a three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner with Audi, is very popular in Japan, where he has been racing since 2003.

Over the course of his career there, he has won the Super GT championship twice and the Super Formula series once.

This year, he races against many familiar faces, including Audi teammate Loic Duval and former F1 drivers Kazuki Nakajima, James Rossiter, Vitantonio Liuzzi and Narain Karthikeyan.
