I can't see him on the grid this year. He could barely touch Maldonado last year and there are more promising, younger drivers on the market. His only chance of a seat now is if he raises some serious dollar, fast.

@Stuart How in the hell is he overrated? People constantly bitch and moan and say he has zero talent and he is only there because of his name, I'm pretty sure that's not being overrated. Its pretty obvious people just want him to fail because of his name, if his name wasn't Senna I guarantee he would have a lot more supporters.

I'm sure Senna would match Paul Di Resta all year if he could get the Force India drive. He's very consistent and in 2013 could still improve a lot, having the same amount of track time and with 2013 tyres. Also it would be his second proper season in F1. Look at what Maldonado did in his first proper season in F1 and look at how much he improved in the second. Bruno could do the same if he was given a second full proper season in a midfield team. In Caterham is different, maybe he won't fight so hard to get a seat there and that can be a problem, as Razia or Van Der Garde have a lot of money too and understably they are more motivated to get the Caterham drive than a driver who last year drove a car capable of scoring points almost everywhere...

Its not easy when you have to give up your seat to miss out on a practice session during the season but still he was more consistent than Maldonado which is what you need now rather than raw speed. He deserves 2 more years with a team at lease but thats my opinion.

Don't forget, Maldonado had big bucks invested in the team, so I'd say he had a slightly better car than Senna (besides the more testing he had). And in 2011 he only came to Renault in the second part for the year, with a lot less testing than the rest of the team.
I'd give him the chance, he had consistency all year round.
