Bruno Senna’s bad mood in Austin may have given away the game when he was asked about his plans for 2013.
It is believed Williams plans to oust Brazilian Senna so that the British team’s young protege Valtteri Bottas can debut alongside Pastor Maldonado next year.
Reports had suggested Senna’s sponsors were looking for an alternative team.
Brazil’s Totalrace, however, wondered if Senna’s prospects are looking particularly grim after he gave ‘monosyllabic’ answers ‘or just repeated the question’ when asked about 2013 in the Austin paddock.
“Any news on the future?” one reporter asked him.
“No,” Senna answered.
“Nothing has changed?” the journalist tried again. “Nothing has changed,” Senna repeated.
Totalrace explained: “All the other questions were answered in the same way.”
