The Brazilian driver Bruno Senna believes he has a good chance of following his late uncle and triple world champion Ayrton into Formula One next year. Senna, 24, finished runner-up this season in GP2, Formula One's feeder series, and said he has been talking to several grand prix teams about the possibility of graduating to their championship. "Obviously, I had a great season in GP2," Senna said. "And I guess it gave me good possibilities to go to Formula One."
"We have been speaking with quite a few teams and there is great interest from a few of them. So there are a few opportunities as a race driver, a few as a test driver, but there is a lot of competition." Ferrari-powered Toro Rosso have a definite vacancy and they are co-owned by former driver Gerhard Berger, a family friend and Ayrton Senna's teammate at McLaren in the early 1990s. "Toro Rosso is one of the possibilities in Formula One, not the only one, but it can make the whole difference and for sure he [Berger] still gives me great advice and helped all the way," he added.
Renault, Honda and BMW may also have vacancies next year. * Reuters
