Oct.01 – Renault GP’s Bruno Senna says that he is still learning and catching-up with the other drivers on the grid, and Senna added other main aspect he was driven at three very different circuits so far in very different conditions, and Suzuka will be another of the traditional race.

The Brazilian gets a chance to substitute Nick Heidfeld for Belgian GP. And he was two times out qualified his team-mate Vitaly Petrov. However asked in a team preview interview whether he felt he was now on a more even keel with the other drivers, Senna replied: “Not yet. Undoubtedly they still have the upper hand because they have completed more races than me.

“So far, I’ve driven at three very different circuits so far in very different conditions, and Suzuka will be another of the traditional races where I have limited experience. I’m learning and catching-up with the other drivers on the grid, but they have a considerable amount more experience than I do, and greater knowledge about the tyres too.”

The Renault GP had a very bad Singapore GP weekend, with the car’s fundamental uneasiness on slow corners leaving duo in the midfield all weekend. The team is adamant that Suzuka next weekend will bring better form, and Senna agreed.

“Yes, I’m convinced that will be the case,” he said. “The low-speed nature of Singapore made it the worst circuit for us in terms of performance.

“That hurt us a little bit, but with the updates we have planned for Suzuka we should be strong there, and hopefully will be able to get both cars in the points again – that’s where we belong.”

“If we can still add to the car a little bit here and there, that will help,” he said. We need to stay ahead of the teams behind us, in particular Force India.

“If we can close the gap to Mercedes GP in fourth, that would be a real boost for the team but primarily we must hold on to fifth position and keep the opposition at bay.”
