Senna expecting to be in the mix in India

Bruno Senna: I loved the experience of being in the points in Monza, and that's something I want to repeat. I have three races left to do that.

Bruno Senna has set his sights on scoring in the inaugural Indian Grand Prix next weekend.

Senna had a weekend 'riddled with problems' in Korea and after only finishing 13th, he is keen to do better at the Buddh International Circuit. Indeed he wants to replicate his points scoring Monza form and is reasonably confident the track will suit him and the R31.

“India will be a complete voyage into the unknown, as no one has ever raced there before. We do not yet know how the car is likely to perform, though looking at the track layout it should suit us quite well, and we can expect to be up amongst the mix in the top 10; although we need to remain careful at this stage,” said the Lotus Renault GP man.

“From the maps I have seen, it looks to be a fast, flowing track that suits my style of driving so I am looking forward to racing there.

“It will be a test of who learns fastest. I think that whichever teams can extract the maximum from their cars in the short period of time that we are there will benefit most.”

Asked about his ambitions for the final three races, Senna confirmed that he just wants to add to the two points he got in Italy.

“Some of my best races were in Abu Dhabi and Brazil last year so there's no reason why I shouldn't enjoy similar fortunes this time around, especially because I am in a competitive car that can score points,” he continued.

“The aim is to keep learning, keep improving, and to arrive in India with a much clearer head after the frustration of my weekend in Korea.

“I loved the experience of being in the points in Monza, and that's something I want to repeat.”
