Filipe Albuquerque will make a return to the World Series by Renault for the final two rounds of the season after concluding a deal with former team Epsilon-Euskadi.

The Portuguese driver, who made his World Series debut last season after winning the 2006 Formula Renault Eurocup, has been on the motorsport sidelines for much of the year after losing his Red Bull backing.

This was despite finishing as the top rookie in fourth overall in the World Series standings following a season that also included a victory at the Hungaroring.

However, things are looking up for Albuquerque, who will race for Portugal in A1GP this season, as, according to Italiaracing.net, he will return to the Spanish team for the final two rounds of World Series in Barcelona and his home round of Estoril.

He will replace Mario Romancini, who is believed to have hit sponsorship problems, and join Frenchman Alexandre Marsoin.
