HRT has replaced Bruno Senna with test and third driver Sakon Yamamoto at Silverstone.

Although race stewards which, at the British Grand Prix, include Nigel Mansell, have agreed to requests for driver changes at Force India (Paul di Resta for Tonio Liuzzi) and Lotus Racing (Fairuz Fauzy for Jarno Trulli) these are for first practice only, whereas the notification regarding Yamamoto and Senna makes no such reference.

HRT has said that they will make a statement later but it is believed that financial issues are at the root of the decision.
