Former Williams F1 driver Bruno Senna has been announced as part of Sky Sports F1's line-up for its coverage of the 2014 Formula 1 season.

The Brazilian will be present for seven F1 rounds this season in Malaysia, China, Hungary, Singapore, Russia, USA and Brazil, providing an insider view of the paddock, race analysis and commentary during practice sessions alongside David Croft.

"I've worked with Sky Sports F1 from the other side of the microphone, and always been impressed with their dedication and creativity so I'm delighted to be joining the team," he said. "I'm particularly excited to get my hands on the touchscreen technology and I hope to reveal a few tricks of the trade but also show just how skilled these drivers are.

"The 2014 rules and regulations, driver changes and new circuits we're seeing this year promise for a fascinating season with everything to drive for - I can't wait to start."

Furthermore, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the death of his uncle, Ayrton Senna, during the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, Bruno will also appear in special programming on the Sky Sports F1 channel to celebrate his life and career.

Bruno's inclusion will see him join a comprehensive team of ex-racers, pundits and presenters, including commentators Croft and Martin Brundle, analysts Damon Hill, Johnny Herbert and Anthony Davidson, presenter Simon Lazenby and presenter-reporters Natalie Pinkham and Ted Kravitz.

Senna, who has started 46 GP's with HRT, Lotus and Williams, has concentrated mostly on sportscar racing in recent years and was recently announced as part of Aston Martin's Le Mans 24 Hours line-up.
