Bruno Senna will definitely return to the wheel of axed regular Nick Heidfeld's Renault in two weeks at Monza.
His teammate, Vitaly Petrov, let the cat out of the bag in the form of a message of congratulations to Senna in front of masses of international media at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.
Senna, the nephew of great triple world champion Ayrton Senna, will this weekend resume his F1 race career after his rookie season with HRT in 2011.
It is believed the two-race deal for Brazilian Senna is a compromise, while Heidfeld's management press a legal claim to the seat.
Senna admitted on Thursday that the "intention" is to keep the drive for the rest of 2011 pending the resolution of "legal issues".
"I am confirmed for this race and the next race. The intention is I will do the rest of the year but it is not confirmed," he added.
