Berger plays down Senna rumours

Toro Rosso logoMany would not be surprised to see Bruno Senna at Toro Rosso next season however co-owner Gerhard Berger is playing down suggestions that Senna s move is almost a done deal.

Berger was Ayrton Senna s team-mate at McLaren during the 1990s and was one of his closest friends. Berger remains close to the Senna family and many believe that Ayrton Senna s nephew, Bruno, will be racing for Toro Rosso next season. Berger has said although he is willing to give the GP2 driver a test, he has not made up his mind on next season s driver line-up.

“I am still not convinced,” he said in an interview with Dutch magazine Formule 1 Race Report. “Bruno Senna is good enough for F1 but the same also applies to Roman Grosjean and Sebastien Buemi. But, so far, none of the three have completely convinced me you could say I don t yet see a new Vettel.

“I am willing to give him [Senna] a test but there are currently no concrete discussions over this.”
