Ricardo Teixeira will return to the GP2 series in Hungary this weekend with the Trident team.
The 30-year-old from Angola, who has been away for racing from 10 months, will replace regular driver Kevin Ceccon for the Hungaroring round.
Ceccon is currently in 15th place in the standings, having scored 28 points.
Teixeira, who made his GP2 debut with Trident in 2009, competed in the series with the Rapax in 2012, failing to score a point.
He will partner Nathanael Berthon in Hungary.
