Klien replaces Yamamoto at Singapore

Hispania Racing has announced that Christian Klien will replace Sakon Yamamoto for this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix, saying that the Japanese driver is suffering from a bout of food poisoning.

Team principal Colin Kolles said, "It looks as if Sakon Yamamoto has a food poisoning, and he doesn't feel well. Because of this, Christian Klien will be driving the car this Friday and the rest of the Singapore Grand Prix. I hope Sakon gets well soon and is able to drive at his home Grand Prix in Japan."
