F1: Bruno Senna To Force India ???
Advertisement
#1
Vijay Mallya has admitted interest in Bruno Senna, the 2008 GP2 runner-up who narrowly missed a seat on this year's formula one grid.

25-year-old Senna, the nephew of the great Ayrton Senna, was a favourite for the cockpit alongside Jenson Button in 2009, until Ross Brawn completed the management buyout and opted instead for Rubens Barrichello's experience.

Indian billionaire Mallya is the owner and team boss of the Force India team, who reportedly considered making a driver change for 2009 but instead opted for stability.

"There were too many changes I was making with the team," he told the British Sunday newspaper the Observer.

"We had management changes and I wanted to have some stability and continuity," said Mallya.

But he indicates that a change next year is on the cards, given that 36-year-old Italian veteran Giancarlo Fisichella is closer to the end of his career than the beginning.

"I know that Giancarlo is reaching the end of his racing career, it may not be next year but he is certainly at the tail end," Mallya said.

"There are youngsters waiting in the wings -- one of them is Bruno Senna and we all thought he would be signed by Brawn GP but they went with Barrichello. We will look at the youngsters at the appropriate time," he added.
