Force India reserve driver James Calado will replace Paul di Resta for the opening Friday practice session at the Indian Grand Prix.
Di Resta is stepping down from driving duties for the morning due to illness.
Although he was able to complete media commitments earlier on Thursday, he has been given additional time to fully recover before reclaiming his car on Friday afternoon.
The Indian GP run will be Calado's third Friday appearance of the season, following outings in Italy and Korea.
