Senna considers American options

17 July 2013

Bruno Senna has hinted that he may pursue a career in America next year although the Brazilian hasn't ruled out the possibility of staying with Aston Martin Racing for a second season.

The former F1 man joined the factory Aston Martin squad at the start of the year having failed to secure a drive in F1 and has soon come to terms with the switch to sportscar competition on the back of a number of impressive performances at the wheel of the team's Vantage GTE.

Speaking to O Estado de S.Paulo, the 29-year-old revealed that staying with AMR is one of a number of options that are in place for 2014 and beyond, with the likes of IndyCar and NASCAR being on the list of possibilities.

"Continuing with Aston Martin is one of the best options I have," he said. "But I also want to see if I can test in NASCAR. It was already supposed to happen at the beginning of the year.

"I am going to have some meetings to see what is the best way forward. I also have options for Indy, Stock and NASCAR.

"What is not lacking are open doors."

Should Senna make the move to NASCAR, he would join the likes of Juan Pablo Montoya and Jacques Villeneuve in taking up the challenge of competing in the series after F1.
