HRT team principal Colin Kolles has confirmed Sakon Yamamoto and Bruno Senna will drive for his team at this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix.

HRT's pre-race press release did not feature quotes from any of the team's drivers, suggesting a decision on the line-up had not yet been made.

Kolles currently has four drivers to choose from, including Yamamoto, Senna, Christian Klien and Karun Chandhok, and at the last grand prix Klien subbed in for Yamamoto when the Japanese was hit with a mysterious case of food poisoning.

Asked to clarify the line-up for the weekend, Kolles told motorsport-total.com on Tuesday: "We're planning with our regular drivers. They are Senna and Yamamoto"

However, he hinted that it could be susceptible to change.

"You never know what's going to happen," said Kolles. "What happens if someone breaks a leg?"
