Senna name returns to Williams
Wednesday 18 January 2012
Brazilian Bruno Senna has signed to drive for Williams this season. The move means the 28-year-old is joining the team for which his uncle Ayrton Senna was driving when he was killed in 1994.
He was preferred to veteran countryman Rubens Barrichello for the position and will partner Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado. "I feel very privileged Williams has selected me as one of their race drivers," said Senna, who will make his debut for Williams in Jerez, Spain on 9 February. "The team has a great heritage and I hope I can help write a good chapter in their history."
Meanwhile, former world champion Damon Hill has joined Sky Sports' coverage of Formula One for the new season. Hill will provide expert analysis at 10 of the 20 grands prix in Australia, Bahrain, Monaco, Britain, Germany, Hungary, Belgium, India, United States and Brazil.
