Christian Klien will be racing at the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend, replacing Sakon Yamamoto at the Hispania Racing team.
Austrian Klien had already replaced the Japanese driver at the Singapore Grand Prix, where the team said Yamamoto was feeling ill. Now Klien will be back in action this weekend at Interlagos, partnering Bruno Senna at the Spanish squad.
"I am excited to come to Brazil where I already raced two times, the last time in 2005, and where I could achieve good results," said Klien. "The circuit is quite challenging and we are racing anti-clockwise which is going to be tough for the neck. There are many slow corners and the long straight at the start-finish line where high speeds are possible.
"I am very happy to get a second opportunity to do another grand prix here after Singapore and I hope that we are doing a good weekend with positive results."
