Dani Clos will be back at the wheel of the HRT after the team confirmed the Spaniard will replace Narain Karthikeyan for first practice at the British Grand Prix.
Clos last drove an F1 car in Barcelona last month for HRT and is raring to get back in the car for Silverstone.
"I'm very happy to step into the F112 once again in Silverstone, a place where I've got good memories since I've made the podium every time I've been in GP2. After Barcelona I've really been looking forward to this new opportunity," he said.
"The work we're carrying out with the team is positive and I think that I can make a good contribution. I will be able to run in better conditions than in Barcelona because the car was new back then and I had to carry out various aero tests. Now I've got a new opportunity, not to prove anything but to work with the team and evolve as much as we can."
