Senna will drive Belgian and Italian only

Published

on

Aug.25 – The Brazilian Bruno Senna will drive at Lotus-Renault GP for Belgium and Italian Grand Prix only, Yesterday Renault confirmed that Senna will substitute Nick Heidfeld at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend but did not give any further details on the contract.

But in the Thursday press conference at Spa, Senna revealed that the team is hoping to keep in the car for the remaining eight races.

“Right now I’m confirmed to do this race and the next race but for some legal issues, which need to be resolved, I can’t confirm if I’m going to do the rest of the year or not,” he said. “The intention is that I’m going to do it but it still cannot be confirmed.”

“It’s going to be a big challenge to come back in the middle of the season, or a bit later than the middle of the season to racing,” he said. “But I’ve been participating in all the meetings with the engineers so I’ve been keeping up-to-date with what is going on in the team. Last Friday in Hungary was very useful for me to get a view for the car and how the car can go. But of course it is going to be a big uphill battle to get to the level of these guys who have been racing for 11 races now. The fact that it’s here in Spa is very special. It’s my circuit and a circuit that historically I’ve done very well at. Hopefully I can progress very fast and hopefully do a job for these guys, because that is the best way to appreciate the opportunity they have given me.” Senna told Thursday press conference.
