Dani Clos will be back at the wheel of the HRT Formula 1 car next Friday when he drives in the opening practice session of the German Grand Prix.
The Spaniard, who has already driven the car in Spain and Great Britain, will replace Narain Karthikeyan once again in his third outing with the Madrid-based outfit.
Clos admitted he is hoping to get more running than at Silverstone, where the poor weather hindered his session.
"I'm happy to be getting into the car again just a few weeks later; it's another very good opportunity for me," said Clos.
"I wasn't able to do much mileage in Silverstone because of the weather but my sensations and the work we did were very positive both for me and the team. We did a great job on a wet track and, although it was brief, it was very intense."
