Sakon Yamamoto will return to the grid with HRT at Hockenheim next weekend, this time in the place of team regular Karun Chandhok.

Last weekend at Silverstone, the new Spanish team replaced Bruno Senna with 28-year-old Japanese Yamamoto, who reportedly has $5 million in sponsorship backing.

In a statement on Friday, Hispania Racing said Yamamoto "gave a very positive performance in Silverstone" and will have "another opportunity to drive the car" in Germany, this time alongside the returning Senna.
