With the action starting at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi early Friday morning, time was very limited to react to this unforeseen event and, together with Christian's management, it was decided that the German rookie will be replaced by Renault F1 spare-driver Ho-Pin Tung during the final round of the 2010 championship. Ho-Pin, the Dutch Chinese Gravity driver, was German F3 Champion in 2006 and competed in GP2 in 2007 and 2008. In 2010, Ho-Pin started the season with DAMS, until a fractured vertebra, a result of an accident at the Hungaroring in August, forced him to pass his steering wheel to former F1 driver Grosjean.

It's the first time for Ho-Pin to be in a Racing Engineering car.
