Senna will be back after Britain

Bruno Senna will return to Hispania after the British GP with the team insisting Sakon Yamamoto is only racing because they wanted to give him an 'opportunity.'

On Thursday evening it was revealed that Senna had been dropped for this weekend's Silverstone race with reports in the British press claiming that it was due to financial reasons.

Hispania refused to comment at the time, saying only that Senna would be replaced by test driver Yamamoto for the British GP.

The team, though, has now confirmed that it is only for the Silverstone race that Senna will be replaced as they wanted to give Yamamoto an "opportunity" to race.

"In respect to the rumours about Bruno Senna's current status 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."
