Senna denies that uncertain F1 future is affecting form

Bruno Senna (BRA) Williams.Formula One World Championship, Rd18, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Preparations, Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi, UAE, Thursday 1 November 2012.Nov.5 (GMM) Bruno Senna has denied that concerns about his Formula One future with Williams are contributing to a loss of form towards the end of the 2012 season.

Although finishing eighth in Abu Dhabi, the Brazilian qualified an awful fifteenth on Saturday and, early in the race, got caught up in a first lap incident.

“It was a very tough weekend,” he said.

It is reported that Williams has opted against taking up the automatic 2013 ‘option’ in Senna’s existing contract.

The British team appears likely to pair Pastor Maldonado with Finnish rookie Valtteri Bottas next year, leaving Senna’s backers in talks with Caterham and Force India.

Asked by Brazil’s TV Globo if the uncertainty over his future is affecting him on the track, Senna answered: “You don’t think about it.

“I’m thinking only about what is happening at the race weekend, from a technical point of view.”

    Loss of form? LOL

    He sucked all season long. Maybe a bit less than in his previous seasons, but his only mission should be to give HRT another season by bringing his sponsor millions there.
