Bruno Senna Lotus Renault GP Third Driver

Fresh from his first full season of Formula 1, Bruno Senna arrives at Enstone as one of the team’s third drivers for 2011. Although a latecomer to motorsport, Bruno’s rise through the ranks has been remarkable.
He started his career in British F3 in 2005 before moving to the GP2 Series in 2007 where he immediately showed his raw speed and talent.
By 2008 he was fighting for the GP2 Series title, narrowly missing out on winning the championship in the final race, finishing as series runner-up.
A move to sports cars in 2009 and a shot at the Le Mans 24 hours proved a stepping stone to Formula 1 as Bruno made his debut at the start of 2010 with Hispania Racing.
Bruno Senna: “Ready to make the most of this opportunity”
Bruno, congratulations on your new role with Lotus Renault GP – how does it feel to be part of the team? 
It’s a great moment for me. I’ve been trying to get into a good Formula 1 programme for a couple of years so it feels great to be joining such an established team. I’m proud of this achievement and thankful for the opportunity that I’ve been given.
What do you think of the team’s new livery – will it feel special to wear these iconic colours? 
It’s probably the most attractive colour scheme in Formula 1 history. Black and gold looked beautiful back in the 1980s, when my uncle was racing, and they look just as stunning on a current car. Also, to be able to wear the same colours that my uncle used for a few years in his career feels very special.
You visited Enstone recently, what did you think of the facilities? 
I was very impressed. When you walk around the factory you can see how much is going on behind the scenes and how hard everybody is pushing to take the team forward. Everyone is optimistic that the team will take a big jump forward in performance this year.
What do you hope to learn in your role as third driver? 
This year will be all about integrating myself with the team and extracting the most I can from being in such a competitive environment. Being part of this project will give me so much valuable experience and it’s down to me to make the most of it. I hope that I can develop myself and prove to the team that I should be given an opportunity for the future.
