Senna could return to GP2 - with Campos?

Super Nova's David Sears has made no secret of his willingness to hire Senna should the opportunity arise, but it is unlikely that the Brazilian would look too much further down the grid for a season in which he has to be a frontrunner at minimum, effectively ruling out the likes of Arden, Durango, FMSI, Trident, DPR and Tiago Monteiro's new Ocean Racing Technology.

Wherever he winds up, however, iSport boss Paul Jackson insists that there will be no ill will towards the Brazilian, accepting that time constraints for the team and the driver's natural desire to progress simply made renewing the partnership impossible.

"We have a very good relationship with Bruno, and had a lot of success, so, if he did want to do GP2 again, we said 'for sure, the door's always open, we'd love to have you," Jackson told, "It was just that the thing was getting so drawn out, with no real decisions being made, that it put us all in a very difficult situation.

"Circumstances have dictated the whole situation really. From Bruno's point of view, to do GP2 again represented something of a risk - having finished second already, if he didn't win it, it would represent some kind of failure. But, with the way things have unfolded in the F1 world, his opportunities have diminished there as well, so it's put him in a very difficult position where there isn't an obvious 'win' situation. But, from iSport's point of view, we do have to operate as a business, make sure that we're there and we're running, and we felt that the time had come where we couldn't hang things out any more because we'd start to lose other options.

"If [he goes to Campos], it happens. It's entirely understandable that, if F1 closed its doors to him and there was still an opportunity in GP2, then that's the right thing for him to do. There'd be no bad feeling over that. He's got to do what's right for him, and iSport's got to do what's right for us.”
