Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium: British Formula One driver Max Chilton is set to race in Sunday`s Belgian Grand Prix after all following a U-turn by his Marussia team, who dropped him on Thursday due to a contractual dispute.

A team spokeswoman said Chilton would take part in Friday`s second practice and the rest of the race weekend at the Spa circuit instead of American Alexander Rossi.

Rossi, who would have been the first U.S. driver to start a grand prix since Scott Speed in 2006, took part in the day`s first practice session.
