Antonio Felix da Costa will stay on with Arden Caterham for the 2013 Formula Renault 3.5 season.
The Red Bull protégé joined the series from the sixth round last year, replacing Lewis Williamson. Da Costa then swept to fourth in the championship, taking four wins along the way. The 21-year-old from Portugal was also a GP3 title contender in a parallel program with Carlin, ultimately taking third in the standings.
To complete a spectacular year, da Costa drove for Red Bull in the Formula 1 young driver test in Abu Dhabi and returned to Formula 3 to win the Macau Grand Prix.
Reigning FR3.5 champion Robin Frijns told AUTOSPORT last year that he expected da Costa and fellow returnee Kevin Magnussen, who has signed for DAMS, to battle for the 2013 title.
