Renault confirm Bruno Senna replaces Heidfeld

By on Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Bruno Senna will turn to the Formula One grid at Spa for the first time since last year's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Brazilian, nephew of triple world champion Ayrton, will race for Lotus Renault GP and replaces Nick Heidfeld.

"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," said a Renault official.

Renault has made no secret of its desire to promote test drivers in the absence of the injured Robert Kubica. Romain Grosjean is expected to race for the team from the Singapore Grand Prix.
