Was his bad race in Australia actually his fault at all? And I only mean the race, I don’t argue that his qualifying was poor.
@damonsmedley – Webber and Hamilton have proven track records. If they have a bad weekend, it’s probably a one-off. I don’t think Senna has actually had a good weekend yet. He might have scored points in Malaysia, but only because the stoppage gave the team time to work on the car.
To me Bruno has justified that he deserves an F1 seat on merit. He is at the very least a solid midfielder. In the right car he can nab podiums. Can he win races and titles? I don’t think so.
He was very close to Maldonado today. Doesn’t mean it’ll stay that way, but it’s good to his his first qualifying session of the year where he can’t be accused of being particularly weak.
I’ve already said that I thought Senna might do well this year, but that he might struggle to compete with Maldonado for a while. But he had a great race today.
I must say, I’ve always doubted Senna a lot ever since he came to F1. But now I’m having second thoughts. His performance today in China proved that he is certainly worth an F1 seat, despite his little “moment” at turn 1.
6th in Malaysia, 7th in China – He’s doing well so far. :)
Good race for him today, have to say.
It’ll be a close battle between him and Maldonado this year.
