Klien replaces Yamamoto as HRT musical chairs continues

Christian Klien is to get another chance to race for HRT this weekend in Brazil as he stands in for Sakon Yamamoto.

This time the team hasn’t claimed that the Japanese driver has food poisoning, and no reason has been given for the change.

For those keeping count technically it’s the team’s sixth driver change of the year following Senna-Yamamoto, Yamamoto-Senna, Chandhok-Yamamoto, Yamamoto-Klien, Klein-Yamamoto, and Yamamoto-Klien again. Wonder who will drive in Abu Dhabi…

In a team statement Klien said: “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. 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.”

  1. Great news! Before the cynics start complaining about the driver rotation policy we now have another chance to see how Klein will perform this weekend and find out if Hispania will be any closer to Virgin or Lotus? Will Senna be closer to Klein than he was in Singapore? We can also put Chandhok, Senna and Yamamoto’s talent in perspective. Believe it or not Klein is actually bringing some sponsorship funds to the team in the form of Upsynth backing!

    Sorry for Sakon and his mother, to be honest, I’d like to see the fastest driver of four Klien or funny lad Chandhok driving HRT machine even if I’m a Japanese, which is better for HRT hunting 10th place in constructors’ standing.
