Bruno Senna will race for HRT for the remainder of the Formula One 2010 season, despite being dropped for the British grand prix.
Sakon Yamamoto took Senna's place at Silverstone, but the team gave no reason for the driver change when the announcement was made last Thursday.
In a statement, HRT said that it had simply wanted to give an "opportunity" for Yamamoto at the British grand prix.
The statement said: "In respect to the rumours about Bruno Senna's current status with HRT F1 Team, the team wants to confirm that Bruno Senna has all the support of the Spanish team, that he remains one of the HRT F1 Team official drivers and that he will be continuing to drive in the remaining races of the 2010 Formula One world championship."
The Japanese driver, who has previously raced for Spyker and Super Aguri, has been at the team since April as its test driver. He finished 20th at Silverstone and was last of the drivers who made the finish.
Neither team principal Colin Kolles nor Senna himself were willing to comment on the matter.
