HRT will stick with Bruno Senna and Sakon Yamamoto as its drivers for the remainder of the season, according to German magazine Speed Week.

So far in its debut season, HRT has used Senna and Yamamoto as well as Karun Chandhok and Christian Klien. There was confusion about who would drive this weekend when the team's press release, which would usually contain such information, failed to mention any single person.

At the last race in Singapore there was an almost farcical situation when Klien was brought in because Yamamoto was reported to have been struck down with a serious stomach upset, only to appear at the track looking fit and well.

HRT is known to be looking for sponsors near the end of what has been a difficult season. Chandhok, who drove the first half of the season, is believed not to have delivered as much money as was hoped, while Yamamoto brings in around $450,000 for every race he takes part in.
