Bruno Senna to race for Renault

PARIS -- Brazilian driver Bruno Senna will race for Renault in the Belgian Grand Prix.

Senna, replacing German driver Nick Heidfeld, will compete alongside Vitaly Petrov, the Formula One team said Wednesday, without indicating whether Senna will keep his spot until the end of the season.

Heidfeld took over after Robert Kubica sustained a career-threatening injury in a rally car accident in February.

Senna made his F1 debut with Hispania Racing last season, and started the season as a reserve driver for Renault. His late uncle was F1 great Ayrton Senna.
