May 15 (GMM) Sakon Yamamoto will get a turn at the wheel of HRT’s 2010 car in Turkey in two weeks.

The struggling Spanish team’s other test and reserve driver Christian Klien drove the F110 during Friday practice in Barcelona last week.

And according to sources in the Monaco paddock this weekend, 27-year-old Yamamoto will be at the wheel of Bruno Senna’s car for morning practice on the Friday of the forthcoming grand prix in Istanbul.

The Japanese contested 14 grands prix with Super Aguri and Spyker in 2006 and 2007.

“I hope I will be able to gather useful data whenever possible on Friday for the race drivers,” he said recently.
