F1 » Did Senna e-mail spark Yamamoto replacement..?


According to reports, F1 2010 rookie Bruno Senna's replacement by Sakon Yamamoto in last weekend's British Grand Prix at Silverstone was not the product of financial issues, but rather an errant e-mail sent to Hispania Racing team principal Dr. Colin Kolles...

If it's true, he deserved the reaction he got. Imagine writing an email of this sort and actually putting the recipient's address in it and then accidentally hitting the send button.

But at this end of the grid, I have to say that I don't really care.

I've done it! Made me look like a right prat as wel. Just escaped with my job too.

One thing I learned by that was that you can recall an email with Outlook! :rolleyes:

So what...Senna thinks the boss does not know how to manage the team...that's the big reason to take him out of the car??

That is completely crazy...just goes to show this team is lightweight and managed by people with the maturity level of kindergarden kids...The big boss was hurt by the e-mail?

When you pay to drive you should be allowed to moan.

Same problem where I work and the company never moves forward...they want people to give their imput and when they do penalize them...take your money somewhere else Bruno

I'm sorry guys, but Senna proved with that stupid incident that he not only has very little upstairs but also can't drive a car as we all expect him to.

Kovalainen Lotus 422 79%
Trulli Lotus 424 78.2%
Glock Virgin 354 65.1%
de la Rosa Sauber 306 56.3%
Senna HRT 299 54.6%
Yamamoto HRT 50 96.2%

Senna only completed the leaset amount of laps second to new boy Yamma. He also outqualified Chandock 6:3 ONLY. Who is Chandock? Those stats should be 80% : 20% in my view.

@ JMichel - Clearly Senna has the maturity level of kind, as he should've spoken directly to Colles should he really have had an issue with HIS style. What kind of maturity does he show by bitching (intending to anyway) about the boss to someone else?

He's been rather disappointing in his first stint within F1 and should treat people who are trying to assist him with the necessary respect.

This is just my opinion. I hope he learns from this one and becomes a better person/F1 pilot.
