Bruno Senna, nephew of the late great Ayrton Senna, has expressed his wish to join Formula 1 in the next few seasons. The 23 year old Brazilian driver will probably join the GP2 series next season as preparation for Formula 1.
“I hope I will be racing in Formula 1 in one or two years. It depends how it will go next year. I have a few contacts already in Formula 1”, he explained to German magazine Bild. One of these contacts is Gerhard Berger who as well as being a good friend of Ayrton Senna, also owns 50% of the Formula 1 team Scuderia Toro Rosso.
On Schumacher, Bruno has stated he does not believe that he would have won so many titles had his uncle Ayrton still been alive. “If my uncle didn’t crash I think Michael would have one or two titles less behind his name. Michael has not been always racing at the limit. It would have been different if Ayrton was there to challenge him I think. Ayrton was always racing at the limit but Schumacher won races by a good team strategy.”
