> F1NEWS> Bruno Senna: wanted man Brazilian star has testing and racing options in Formula 1 for 2009 BRUNO Senna has confirmed to GPWeek that he is in negotiations with Honda and Toro Rosso over a Formula 1 race seat in 2009, but has admitted that he and his management team are in discussions with a number of other teams over a potential testing role. With the winter testing season due to get underway on November 19 in Barcelona, the Brazilian is hopeful of adding his name to the testing line-up of the F1 teams. “The possibilities are really good,”he told GPWeek at the Brazilian Grand Prix. “I’m waiting for next week to get some confirmation on what’s going on but it’s looking pretty good to get a test in November, and hopefully it’ll be a few days of testing not only one.” Although Renault is yet to confirm its 2009 driver line-up, Senna told GPWeek that he was not negotiating with the French team. “Yeah, we’re not speaking to Renault. Renault has a line-up of development drivers which I’m not part of. It’s no secret that we’re talking to Toro Rosso and Honda, but we’ve been speaking to other teams regarding test seats as well and the possibilities are pretty good. One way or another we should be in Formula 1 next year as a test driver or in a race seat, which is the priority.” Senna is yet to experience a contemporary Formula 1 car, having only driven a few of his Uncle Ayrton’s former F1 cars in demonstration runs, and the GP2 Vice-Champion confirmed he was looking forward to what will be a brand new experience. “I’m really looking forward to driving one of these things. I think that only driving it will allow me to understand what is the real challenge and I’m really looking forward to it. I hope I can get an opportunity sooner rather than later and put my foot down and feel it.” With Formula 1 fever gripping Brazil and Senna’s hometown of Sao Paulo, Bruno admitted that the electric atmosphere was serving only to increase his hopes of driving in front of his home crowd in 2009. “It’s great excitement. The press is going crazy here and it’s been quite a handful to deal with in a few ways, but it’s been alright. We don’t have anything to hide, so at the moment we are just getting everything sorted and when the good news comes I’ll be a bit more comfortable.” Win a chance to race Bruno Senna HILTON Racing, in association with Bruno Senna, is giving one GPWeek reader and a friend the chance to win a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity to meet and race the Brazilian at a kart experience on Friday 28 November 2008.
