HRT say Bruno Senna will return to drive for the team after replacing him with Sakon Yamamoto for the British Grand Prix.

However the team has not explained why it has replaced Senna for this race, amid rumours they’ve run Yamamoto to bring in more money from sponsorship.

In a statement the team said:

HRT F1 Team has decided to give an opportunity to one of its four drivers, Sakon Yamamoto, for this race, the British Grand Prix.

In respect to the rumors about Bruno Senna?s current states with Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team, the team wants to confirm that Bruno Senna has all the support of the Spanish team, that he remains one of the Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team official drivers and that he will be continuing to drive in the remaining races of the 2010 Formula 1 World Championship.

At the end of second practice today Yamamoto was 1.284 seconds slower than regular driver Karun Chandhok.
