Kamui Kobayashi has as expected signed to race with the Sauber team in 2010.

The Hinwil based team said Japanese Kobayashi, 23, "drew attention to himself" at the end of 2009 with "two strong drives" for Toyota.

Recent reports have linked him with the sponsorship backing of the former long-time Toyota sponsor Panasonic.

"I am convinced he has a great deal of potential and will be able to make the most of it in our team," said Peter Sauber.
