Yamamoto to drive HRT in first session

Sakon Yamamoto will drive the HRT car instead of Bruno Senna in first practice for the Turkish Grand Prix.

The Japanese, who signed as an HRT test driver earlier this year, has been drafted in to help provide feedback on the car as the outfit bids to close the gap on the cars ahead of it.

HRT ran reserve driver Christian Klien for that purpose in the Spanish Grand Prix, while both its race drivers, Senna and Karun Chandhok, completed the whole weekend in Monaco because of the importance of track time there.
