Senna reverts to rookie.

Bruno Senna was content with sixth on the grid for his first ever visit to the GP2 Series at Hockenheim after the title contender complaining of balance issues on his car.

One of the few circuits he did not tackle in his maiden GP2 campaign last year, Senna has spent the weekend learning his way around the German track, a significant disadvantage given many of his closest rivals are either experienced racers or Formula 3 Euroseries graduates.

Furthermore, Senna has now lost further ground to championship leader Giorgio Pantano after the Italian added two points to his advantage with pole position.

Nonetheless, despite struggling with the balance on his iSport International machine, Senna was otherwise pleased to secure a spot on the third row of the grid,

“There are one or two balance issues to sort out before the race – assuming it stays dry, which it might not – but you can't complain if you qualify sixth when the car's handling isn't quite right.

“There was no big problem, really, but some little details need to be addressed. In a way it's good to be as close as I am to the guys at the front, because they have all raced here many times in single-seaters and there are one or two parts of the circuit I'm still working out.

“At least I knew which way the corners went when I got here, but that was about it. I have time to pore over the data tonight and I think I should be in good shape for the race.”
