Bruno Senna is looking like the odd man out at Williams, after Pastor Maldonado's race win and Valtteri Bottas' impressive practice performances puts his position under threat.

Wait there! You people are quick to jump on someone's back!

Let's go back two & three races ago, Senna outperformed Maldonado brilliantly in Malaysia and China and you're no wasting he's rubbish, I think he'll look at this weekend and probably come back stronger after seeing Maldonado win!

an 6th and an 7th race results in the first 4 races and his sponsors pay half Williams' bills. Yet another crash.net paparazzi news. Not running on Fridays are definetely being counter-productive for him and he voiced Bottas completely messes up with the setup and he has to spend time getting to ground zero and then start to find the proper balance. Bottas is trying to leapfrog some serious steps I say Williams send him to GP2 and let Bruno practice on Fridays.

@taipan,

Bruno Hakkinen, lol

Anyway, they should drop senna asap. The more Fins the marrier!
Bruno is as bland as a bar of soap, and not quick enough to justify his position.

Just looked up Bottas' results to verify what I already knew: in 2 years of Euro F3, despite driving for the all conquering dominant team that dominated the championship year after he year he won just two out of 38 races and had 3 pole positions. That means in 36 races he was beaten by mostly his teammates and in 35 qualifyings the same thing. He placed 3rd in the championship twice behind Bianchi and Vietoris in '09 and Mortara and who other than Marko Wittman in '10.

Based on his resume it's rediculous to predict he'd necessarily be better than any of the current drivers on the grid save maybe Narain.

I think it is difficult to predict someones success based on performance in other series.

But, let's not pretend that performance is a key issue for Williams (if it were Hulkenberg might still be there). If they get more money for running Botas next season, guess who will get the drive.

I don't think its right to say Senna is tarnishing a legacy or that he's not in F1 by right. He showed his potential before his move into the top flight, for some reason this hasn't worked out. Reminds me of Pizzonia, super talented guy when racing in F3 who didn't cut it in F1.. now racing stock cars in Brazil i think..
