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.

Elijah: Senna has been outqualified, his times during race are not near his team-mate, Points? well, Pastor has 3 DNF's, two of which were due to the car. But you are right, it is way too soon to write him off. I wish that he is given a proper chance by giving him P1 back and moral support that every driver deserves while in contract

@kranalif
I don't know what you get the P1 from, and yes Bruno has been a out qualified by Maldonado in all Grand Prix's this your bar one. However, Senna has just joined the team. I would certainly think he needs more time to settle in before a definitive judgement can be made.

I would just like to say, F3 results don't say a great deal about performance in Formula 1.

There are a few drivers that were great in F3 and went on to show nothing near the ability in F1.

Meanwhile, the 2010 and 2011 World Champion Seb Vettel only took 4 wins in 40 Formula 3 races. Quite a few 4-7th places in there - hardly stunning.

Right now I'm not going to say the writing's on the wall for Senna, but one thing's for sure, - this season is throwing up one hell of a lot of surprises, if only all for the good of the 'sport' and its fans!!!

Crazy media hype in a slow news day for F1. It has been just 4 races this season and until this win PM was no where to be found. I for sure was one of the people who was calling for PM to be replaced end of last year and I still have my doubts on him b/c he seems very hot/cold on form still. This win for sure is a huge boost for the team, but it is just once race. Consistency is what wins championships not just flashes of brilliance and that is over a season no just 1 race. JB and MW did not make it to Q3 this race, is anyone saying their seats are under threat? This is good result for Williams, and I am sure both Senna and PM will perform well at Monaco.

Elijah: I am not necessarily disagreeing with you. When I said "give him P1 back", I was referring to the fact that Senna has had only P2 and P3 to set up his car. I am sure that, given the entire weekend, he would do better and yes as I said, it is too soon to write him off.

If there is any driver to be axed, it should be Massa .......followed by poppy Schumacher
