F1 » Senna 'happy', but wishes race had been 'just one lap longer...'

Whilst team-mate Vitaly Petrov found himself in the wars and removed from the equation right at the start, Bruno Senna admitted he was delighted to score his first F1 points in only his second race for Lotus Renault GP at Monza

A good race from Bruno, with an unfortunate start and a frenetic finish.

Two more facts: Bruno posted the fourth fastest lap with 1:26.895 and reached the fastest speed recorded at the speed trap with 347.0 km/h, followed by Massa and Perez at 342.8 km/h.

@waz1164 I totally agree. I can't stand that everyone bags on him all the time. I know it's only two races but he's showing his skill and that he deserves to be here. I just hope that Renault keep him. If not then he deserves a ride somewhere else next season. I followed Ayrton for so long that I'm just happy that I'm seeing the name Senna back in the mix.

I'm sorry but I don't find a 9th place impressive when there were like 10 retirements with some strong drivers beaing taken out in the first lap + Webbo's retirement. Plus his early stop helped him because unlike others he didnt have to do a full medium run but even then he barely beat Buemi, not to mention his car is way stronger than the other midfield drivers. So far he has received too much hype from the team only because of their new Brazilian sponsor.

I didn't say his result was impressive. Finding himself in last place at the end of the first lap wrote off any chance of a great result. But the drive was as good as anything we could have expected of Heidfeld in his hundred and somethingth GP. Bruno's showing continual and fast improvement, so yes I am impressed.
