Heidfeld and Klien return to F1 racing this weekend

Nick Heidfeld

Nick Heidfeld will race for his old team for the rest of the season

There will be two “new” faces on the grid this weekend in Singapore. Sauber announced after Italian GP that Nick Heidfeld will replace Pedro de la Rosa for the rest of the season. (Pedro de la Rosa will take on the Pirelli testing job previously held by Heidfeld and Grosjean).

Short while ago the HRT team announced that Christian Klien will replace Sakon Yamamoto for the Singapore GP. The official reason is food poisoning. The team hopes that Yamamoto will be OK to race in Japan. Here is the press release from HRT:

Colin Kolles, Team Principal: “It looks as if Sakon Yamamoto has a food poisoning, and he doesn’t feel well. Because of this, Christian Klien will be driving the car this Friday and the rest of the Singapore Grand Prix. I hope Sakon gets well soon and is able to drive at his home Grand Prix in Japan.”

The Austrian driver was already driving for the Spanish team in the Friday morning sessions in Barcelona and Valencia. The 27 year old, who came 3rd on the podium in the 2008 Le Mans 24h – LMP1 class, also won the 1.000 km of Spa with Peugeot in 2009. He was also a test driver in 2007 at Honda Racing F1 Team, and in 2008 and 2009 at BMW Sauber F1 Team. He drove his maiden season of F1 with Jaguar Racing 2004 when he was only 21 years old, and then Red Bull Racing for the next two
seasons (2005-2006).
