Senna and Yamamoto set for Japan

Colin Kolles confirms Sakon Yamamoto and Bruno Senna will race at Suzuka
Following Hispania's decision to send out its preview for the Japanese Grand Prix without mention of any of its four drivers [See HERE], team boss Colin Kolles has confirmed that Sakon Yamamoto and Bruno Senna are set to be in action on track.

Yamamoto missed the last race in Singapore with food poisoning and was replaced by Christian Klien, but was always expected to return for his home round of the year.

However, the fact that the team's preview failed to mention either Yamamoto, Senna, Klien or Karun Chandhok raised questions over who would be at the wheel during the weekend.

Yamamoto's position was all but confirmed when the FIA confirmed he will appear in Thursday's press conference at Suzuka but Kolles has now revealed that Senna will also be in action – at least at the moment anyway.

"We're planning with our regular drivers,” he told Motorsport-Total. “They are Senna and Yamamoto.

"[However] You never know what's going to happen. What happens if someone breaks a leg?"

Colin said "what if someone breaks a leg?". I think this can be likened somewhat to Yamamoto getting "food poisoning". If I was Senna are Yamamoto right now, i'd be careful around Colin...
