Barrichello criticism does not matter to Senna

(L to R): Rubens Barrichello (BRA) Williams and Bruno Senna (BRA) Lotus Renault GP in the FIA Press Conference. Formula One World Championship, Rd 19, Brazilian Grand Prix, Preparations, Interlagos, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Thursday 24 November 2011.Oct.5 (GMM) Bruno Senna has dismissed countryman Rubens Barrichello’s suggestion that he would have scored twice as many points as Williams‘ 2012 drivers.

F1 veteran Barrichello, who was Pastor Maldonado’s teammate last year but is now an Indycar driver, was replaced by Senna for 2012.

The 40-year-old Brazilian has suggested on several occasions this year that he would be doing a better job if Williams had kept him on board.

Senna, who is fighting to keep his seat for 2013 amid rumours that Williams is close to replacing him with Valtteri Bottas, responded: “Everybody has the right to give an opinion.”

Referring to Barrichello, he added: “I think that for him, without being on the track, it’s easy to talk.

“I think if you ask everyone from the first to the last team, they would all say they could score more points.

“So it’s just an opinion that doesn’t matter much,” Senna told Brazil’s Totalrace.

    Barrichello is just seeming more and more desperate the more he speaks. He’s doing a good job in indy car so why not concentrate on that, it’s unfortunate he had to leave F1 the way he did but he needs to realise there is no way back for him.
