Well, this is extremely dissapointing to say the least. HRT are obviously now desperate, just hope Bruno can pick something else up, although historically speaking it's unlikely. Damn Ross Brawn, he would have done alright in last year's car if they didn't go for Barrichello. Seems the Senna name is lost again, this time before it had really begun.

Sad news :rolleyes: Bruno HAS the talent, he's already proven it in F3 and GP2 on several occasions and also during Honda F1 test in Autumn 2008.
He had a pause in his racing for several years due to Ayrton's accident and NO ONE WITHOUT talent could catch-up other guys so quickly in open-wheelers. He has it, but... Too bad he only got to drive HRT :rolleyes:

Go Bruno, hopefully your honest chance comes!

hrt did a good job getting to the grid, but this isnt a good thing for f1, we used to hear that we possibly have the best drivers on the grid, well sato beat sakon and is now racing in the states, tiago montiero would beat this guy and is in touring cars, anthony davidson does sports cars and tv, thd list of drivers ahead of him on ability is endless, just done his first lap and is nine seconds of the pace, ridiculous! :?
