Senna to return to HRT race seat in Germany
(GMM)  Bruno Senna will return to the wheel of his HRT car at Hockenheim in two weeks.

The new Spanish team has replaced the Brazilian at Silverstone with reserve driver Sakon Yamamoto, amid speculation the Japanese is better funded.

But Senna, 26, is at the Northamptonshire venue on Friday and has been locked in meetings with team boss Colin Kolles and manager Chris Goodwin.

Hispania then said in a statement that the team "decided to give an opportunity" to Yamamoto, who turns 28 on Friday.

"Bruno Senna will continue to drive in the remaining races," the statement added.

Yamamoto is more than a second off the pace of team regular Karun Chandhok at Silverstone, and during the afternoon session looked to be suffering from a sore neck.

HRT's statement referred to "the rumors" about Senna's financial position, but neither Senna, Goodwin or Kolles would explain the true reasons for the Silverstone situation.
