Honda to test Senna - and Piquet?

Honda F1 has confirmed that it will test Bruno Senna in Barcelona in a fortnight. The team may also test Nelson Piquet, if the Brazilian has not been retained by Renault F1 between now and then. Honda is trying to decide whether or not to re-sign Rubens Barrichello as Jenson Button's team-mate or pick a successor. Piquet is rumoured to be still under consideration for another season at Renault F1, despite his poor showings this year. There are some at Renault F1 who would like to see test driver Lucas di Grassi in the second car, while there are also supporters of the young Franco-Swiss driver Romain Grosjean.
