    the problem is along with a very slow car he has been beaten by everyone else who has driven the HRT this year. The name means nothing without the Ayton in front of it. We have had several sons of drivers and they all did their own thing. Trying to link with deceased uncles is a bit much. Mclaren have never been my favourite team(or even close) but not even I could wish for such a pairing.

    Maybe as a test driver. That’s about all I could imagine.

    As far as sons and nephews go, I think Damon Hill and Nico Rosberg are probably the only two so far that have really proven their merit apart from their family names.

    …and Villeneuve.

    I don’t know about Senna yet and I think its rather impossible to judge him at the moment. However, it was probably a tell tale sign of his actual ability that Brawn chose Barrichello over him. Thats no disrespect against Rubens, but he was getting old even then and I think many of us were shocked when Brawn made that decision. In hindsight of course, it turned out to be a great decision for Brawn.

    Also, as Brundle has alluded to before, being an F1 driver is about confidence. Look at Massa this year with sub par performances, yet some great performances from last year. With Senna being in that dog of a car (and quite frankly, dog of a team) then I can’t blame him for running at the back. We can judge him next year, but not right now I don’t think.

    He wont go to McLaren yet (if ever) but i’d like to see him be given a chance elsewhere
