As rumored earlier this week, Bruno Senna will replace Nick Heidfeld for Renault this weekend at Spa.
Here’s the team first, brief announcement:
[box type=”shadow”]Lotus Renault GP is pleased to announce that Bruno Senna will race alongside Vitaly Petrov at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps.
Bruno will attend the Official FIA Press Conference tomorrow at 15.00.
A press release with further details on the matter will be issued tomorrow morning.[/box]
F1 news outlets are adding that Heidfeld will be leaving the team, although there is no official word or even, from what I’ve seen, attributions of that part of the news to any unnamed sources. It’s probably just a given at this point.
Heidfeld, keep in mind, is eighth in the driver’s standings, two points ahead of Petrov. The team sits in fifth place.
