bruno should stay. He is naturaly fast as he has shown in all the junior formula he has raced in.
Just a bit of polish and a good team is all that is required. :)

Senna is a good driver and has put in some good performances in an underdeveloped car this year. There are some edges that need polishing but he has acquitted himself very well so far.

As for 2011 options for Bruno are limited. He hasn't got the finances to secure a full time seat so he either needs to hope one of the new teams or HRT secures a big title sponsor or he needs to find a seat at an established team and those are few and far between already. His best hopes are Force India, Renault and Sauber. But those spare seats are already being linked with other drivers.

Good luck Bruno I hope we see you full time in 2011.

Brunno's first season has been poor in my opinion. He has been consistantly out performed by Karun, and hasn shown none of the promise that he had in other formula's
He will be very luck to remain in F1 next season. With the way that HRT is going, they will no longer be around, and he hasnt done anything to make any other new, or established teams for that matter, think about taking him on board.
He scored a major own goal with the way he handled the Honda situation, and in many peoples eyes he is still the spoilt brat that he was then... how he must regret that dicision. Surely him staying on and test driving for what became Brawn GP would have led bigger and better things than HRT.

sennas only chance to remain in f1, is with hrt. why, he is being beaten by chandhok in the same car. he has shown no signs of an outstanding skill. hrt would keep him only for the money. but they may be able to find a faster driver with a wad more !. all this asumes that hrt will still be around next year

Drivers like Senna, Glock, Trulli, Barichello, and even Schumacher need good cars to stay competitive. If Senna was driving a Ferrari or McLaren or even a Williams, I bet he would be one of the fastest on the grid.

@Matt Bruno has out qualified Karun 6 - 3. During the race he has had more problems than Karun so you can't really compare the race results. I'm not really sure how you come up with the conclusion that he has been "consistantly out-performed"

Secondly I was unaware that he was even offered a test drive at Brawn GP, can you please let me know your source for this?
As far as I can see he handled the whole thing pretty professionally.

It must be soul destroying for both Senna and Karun to not know what they are doing one weekend to the next.

The HRT team is so low on funds that the "driver rotation" scheme is just a way that the team owner tries to disguise the fact that money is so low now that unless he replaces at least one regular driver wath a pay driver the team physically can not pay for the tyres and fuel for each race ( Senna has admitted this today in an interview )

How can any driver rookie or not concentrate on driving under such uncertanty?
