Senna determined to shine at home

Bruno Senna: Korea was a great result for the team, and we are really now starting to show that we can compete at a good level. There are two races to go before the season closes, and we all want to finish as strong as possible.

Hispania Racing driver Bruno Senna is excited ahead of his first home race this weekend in Sao Paulo.

The Brazilian star will be one of four home crowd favourites at Interlagos on Sunday, along with Rubens Barrichello, Lucas Di Grassi and Felipe Massa, and he is eager to deliver a strong performance in front of his compatriots.

"Interlagos is one of the most popular tracks amongst the drivers, and I cannot wait to compete here for the first time this weekend,” he said. “I'm lucky to receive some fantastic support from fans every time I come home to Brazil, and am determined to put on a good performance on Sunday.

“I know that the track has many inclines, and will require a lot of power from the car's engine. It's renowned as a tough physical race for the drivers, with its anti-clockwise circuit moving the driver's neck to the left and not the right. It's a challenge however that I'm looking forward to."

After delivering some strong performances over his last few races, including a 14th place finish at Korea, Senna is looking to maintain his run of form until the end of the season.

"Korea was a great result for the team, and we are really now starting to show that we can compete at a good level. There are two grand's prix to go before the season closes, and we all really want to finish as strong as possible," Senna summed-up.

A lot of people seem to be willing enough to write him off (JDPower...). I don't see how you can judge the performance of a driver in that car, and in that team. The next coming of (insert your own hero's name here) would not get that car, with that team, further up the grid. I would like to see another year, and another, more stable, team.
