Bruno joins Williams!

Rumours had been rife for weeks and yesterday Williams finally confirmed that Bruno Senna will be joining the team to partner last year rookie Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado. Bruno continues in the footsteps of his famous uncle Ayrton Senna, also drove for Williams before his fatal crash in 1994.

Generally this has been received as good news from the F1 community on Twitter although most express concerns about having two young “relative novices” in the team and losing the experience of Rubens Barichello (who Bruno replaced).

Time will tell if the sponsorship both young drivers bring will bring about the much needed development Williams needs and perhaps young Senna might finally step out of his uncle’s shadow.
