BiographyEdit

Born on 15 October 1983 in São Paulo, Brazil, Bruno Senna is the nephew of former World Champion Ayrton Senna. His racing career was briefly halted by Ayrton's death at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, as well as the death of his father in a motorbike accident in 1996. Senna competed in Formula Three from 2005-06 and GP2 from 2007-08, in which he won three races and finished runner up in 2008. In November 2008 he tested for Honda in Barcelona during the winter test, however the team did not sign him for 2009.

On 30 October 2009 Senna signed Hispania Racing to race in 2010, his teammate was Karun Chandock. Senna was replaced after the first nine races, with Sakon Yamamoto filling his seat. Senna returned the race after with Yamamoto replacing Chandhok. He ended the season in 23rd place with 0 points. In 2011 Senna was announced as a test and reserve driver for the Renault team. At the Belgian Grand Prix Senna replaced Nick Heidfeld for the rest of the season. He finished ninth at the Italian Grand Prix, scoring his first Formula One points, ending the season in 18th place. In 2012 Williams confirmed Senna would drive for them alongside Pastor Maldonado. He achieved 10 points scoring results, ending the season in 16th place with a total of 31 points, but was replaced by Valtteri Bottas for next season.
