Bruno Senna “Likely” To Replace Trulli At Lotus Next Season
Reports from Brazil are suggesting that Bruno Senna is “likely” to be replacing Italian driver Jarno Trulli at Lotus for next season.
Senna, who is the nephew of the late three time world champion Ayrton, has had a difficult rookie season in F1 racing with the Hispania team. He has talent, but needs a car to show it in – and the Lotus would certainly give him the backing to do so.
According to Globo Esporte talks between Senna and Lotus are “advanced”. He would be partnering former McLaren driver Heikki Kovalainen at the Malaysian backed team.
Jarno Trulli is a stalwart of the F1 paddock, having been in the sport since 1997. He has raced for Minardi, Prost, Renault, Jordan, Toyota and most recently Lotus.
