Sakon Yamamoto will keep his seat for Hispania Racing at this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix, the Spanish team have confirmed.

The race in Budapest will be the Japanese driver’s third of the season after replacing Bruno Senna in Silverstone, and Karun Chandhok for last week’s German Grand Prix with the Indian driver again missing out.

“I can’t wait to go back to the Hungaroring as I know the circuit already very well from my Formula 1 races with Super Aguri, Spyker F1 and with ART in GP2 series,” said Yamamoto.

Hispania have suffered financial problems since their arrival in Formula 1, and the consensus is that Yamamoto’s considerable sponsorship is the reason for his inclusion in the team over the original drivers.

Despite losing out to Yamamoto again, Hispania have said that Chandhok is still a part of the team, which also lists former Jaguar and Red Bull driver Christian Klien on its books.

Colin Kolles hinted last weekend that Klien could also feature before the end of the 2010 season.
