What now for Bruno Senna?

With Scuderia Toro Rosso having announced a deal for Sebastien Bourdais and no word yet from the team formerly known as Honda Racing F1, the future of Bruno Senna remains undecided. There is no real mileage in F1 testing deals these days and a third year in GP2 is an option but one that might easily backfire on him. The choice of to America is not that attractive as it is hard to get back from there and so Senna's primary goal must remain Formula 1. The opportunities in GP2 remain but are beginning to close down with iSport having confirmed Diego Nunes and Giedo van der Garde.

ART has signed Pastor Maldonado and Nico Hulkenberg and DAMS Kamui Kobayashi and Jerome d'Ambrosio but otherwise most of the GP2 seats remain open. In part this is because of the trouble drivers are having finding budgets but it is also because Senna is available and is believed to have funding behind him.
