Pastor also has the benefit of his own car on every free practice session. I’m not saying that Senna is great, but you kind of feel like the odds are stacked against him a bit. I really feel like if he can sort his qualifying out then his races will start to get much better.
Senna had his car for free practice in Australia, Monaco, and Canada.
Australia – Bruno was fighting with Massa while Pastor was fighting with Alonso. Nuff’ said.
Monaco – He was outqualified by 5 positions, but MAD-onaldo had a pretty crappy weekend himself there.
Canada – He was nowhere near Maldonado all weekend.
I understand to why some love Bruno, as he’s the nephew of the great Ayrton Senna. Sadly, I’m afraid that he’s simply not as good as his uncle. Although I certainly don’t think it’s because he’s lacking talent, but rather his lack of experience. Missing out on racing between the age of 10 to 21 is a massive development range. I firmly believe that if his career didn’t come to a halt, he’d be at the same level as Ayrton right now.
Actually, I know for a fact that if it weren’t for his decade-long departure from racing, he’d be amongst the best drivers on the grid. I can prove it with reasonable judgement too. :P
