Senna: Time is running out

Time is against me admits Bruno Senna as he looks to secure F1 future
Bruno Senna admits that time is running out for him to secure a drive for the 2011 F1 season.

The Brazilian joined the grid this year with Hispania but endured a tough debut campaign as the newcomers struggled for pace and results at the back of the grid.

Options for 2011 are now limited if Senna is to remain on the grid and he admitted he is looking at all the available options to extend his stay in the sport into a second year.

“Those with free seats,” he replied when asked by Globo Esporte about who he was talking to. “I am still negotiating but it is not easy to find a free seat. There is nothing definite.”

Senna, who had previously been linked to a race seat with Honda before the manufacturer quit the sport, added that Hispania hadn't been the ideal surroundings in which to try and impress.

The team only made it onto the grid at the last minute and arrived in Bahrain without two completed cars – which would then go through the season without any updates.

“The season was difficult,” he admitted, “and I was unable to demonstrate what I can do.”

I'm absolutely convinced that Koba would have done much better in that pile of poo of HRT than Bruno, hence I wouldn't miss him if he did not return. Yes HRT is shi$e, but Bruno hasn't really set the world on fire either, with his driving that is. As for putting him next to Kubica, that would be plain foolish as he would be made to look even more ordinary than he is currently. I agree with one of the posters on here, he should go to a different formula... IMHO
