Bruno Senna to replace Heidfeld in Belgium and Italy

As was rumoured earlier in the week, Bruno Senna will replace Nick Heidfeld at the Renault F1 team for this weekend’s Belgium Grand Prix.

The team have made little secret of their interest in other drivers and with Vitaly Petrov under contract until the end of 2012 attention was focussed on Heidfeld’s seat.

Senna is expected to race in both the Belgian and Italian Grand Prix after which it is expected that the team may opt for soon to be crowned GP2 champion and former Renault F1 driver Romain Grosjean.

While Grosjean’s nationality would be highly attractive to the French car manufacturer Senna is not without his own marketing qualities. With the distinctive colours of both John Player Special and Ayrton Senna adorning the car and the driver helmet respectively, the announcement provides a celebration 26 years after Ayrton Senna was victorious at Spa in a Renault powered Lotus.

  1. Interestingly, Belgium is one of the few current day circuits that Bruno Senna has already driven on with the Renault F1 car due to a demonstration run he did earlier this year.

2018 weekend t-shirt has arrived!! Privileged to have attended 33 Grand Prix across ten countries from ages 6 to 33, and as much as it pains me to denounce my own sport there’s no other way than to express my utter disgust at the damage the halo device has done and will do to Formula 1!! Encourage all fans to do the same in 2018 and switch off in protest. @mbrundlef1 @croftyf1 @wbuxtonofficial @tkravitz @f1 @fia.official #nohalo #boycottf12018 Go North!! Life is peaceful there!! The F-Block Rodents. First, last and only Blood Bowl team I will paint. #bloodbowl What light through yonder window breaks? “Sailing!! Takes me awaaaay to where I’m always do do, do dooo” First mate #nofilter
