Hispania have confirmed that Bruno Senna will return to the driver’s seat from the next race in Hockenheim.

Senna was dropped by the team last Thursday ahead of the British Grand Prix, but the nephew of Ayrton Senna was still present in the paddock and at the team’s team briefings.

There has been no official reason as to why Senna was dropped, but Hispania have said they wanted to give Japanese test driver Sakon Yamamoto a chance to race at the British Grand Prix.

Early speculation suggested that the decision was linked to Senna’s sponsorship, which had failed to provide the team with enough money, while Yamamoto was able to provide an immediate cash boost.

There have already been rumours that the F110 chassis upgrade has been funded by Yamamoto’s appearance, with Hispania understood to have bought the old Toyota chassis to help improve their fortunes.

A Hispania statement read: “the team wants to confirm that Bruno Senna has all the support of the Spanish team, that he remains one of the Hispania Racing official drivers and that he will be continuing to drive in the remaining races of the 2010 Formula 1 World Championship.”
