Senna will not be retained for the 2011 season
Hispania Racing have stated today that Bruno Senna will not be racing for them in 2011.
Narain Karthikeyan was confirmed yesterday as the first driver for the team for this upcoming season, but the second slot has yet to be filled.
Bruno Senna was tipped to remain with HRT, but team principal Colin Kolles has ruled this out:
"I can definitely say that Mr Bruno Senna is not going to race for HRT."
If HRT’s best performing driver from last year won’t be retained, then it’s safe to say that Karun Chandhok is out of luck as well, seeing as both of these two drivers lack sponsorship or backing.
The question now is: Who will take the second seat? It will probably be very difficult to guess, as financial backing may well dictate who gets taken on by Hispania.
